Inner-city hotspot Docklands has transformed from a maritime centre into a sleek new waterfront district on the city’s western edge that has all of Melbourne buzzing. From funky street art to large sporting stadiums, to on-trend shopping districts, Docklands has fast-tracked its way to being one of Melbourne’s top-rated entertainment and dining districts.
Docklands may be compact, but that hasn’t deterred it from packing a whole lot in. The art scene is thriving with Docklands Public Art Walk shining a spotlight on street murals and sculptures, plus Docklands is home to ArtVo, an interactive 3D art gallery. Major sporting events and concerts draw big crowds at Eithad Stadium, and the iconic Melbourne Star Observation Wheel takes in water and city views.
Then there is the lively open-air shopping centre, The District Docklands where you can browse an array of fashion trends. Waterfront dining, trendy bars and foodie hangouts are in abundance along the Harbour Promenade, tucked in beneath luxury apartments and sprinkled through the shopping centre and entertainment district. The best part, it’s multicultural and on-point with the rest of Melbourne’s Insta-famous dining and bar scene.
Docklands has become a hotbed of activity on the weekends with travellers popping in, and families coming to experience GlowGolf (miniature golf in the dark), ice-skating or to simply picnic by the harbourside and watch the boats bob in the water.
And being an easy walk or tram ride into the centre of Melbourne’s CBD, corporates are setting up in the designer business complexes, and independents of all ages are flocking to the shiny new high-rise apartments that tower above.
