you can’t discuss this treasured locale without mentioning the South Melbourne
Market. A mecca for gourmands across the city, it’s home to a plethora of
exquisite produce. Whether it’s fine cheese or exotic fruits and veggies (as
well as the common or garden varieties), steaming paella by the plateful or
Melbourne’s most famous dim sims – you dream it, they’ve got it. But foodies
needn’t stop there. South Melbourne also happens to be home to some of the
city’s most-loved cafés. And in a city that reallyloves its cafés, that’s saying something.
As one of Melbourne’s first
suburbs, South Melbourne is replete with heritage charm. Victorian architecture
sits comfortably side by side with chic modern apartments, and a number of
trend-driven creative agencies have taken up residence. Clarendon Street, the
area’s main artery and shopping hub, further adds to the strong community feel
and cements South Melbourne’s status as the suburb that’s got it all.
Melbourne’s rich history is reflected in the beautiful Victorian terraces and
cottages that line its wide, leafy streets. In certain parts of the
neighbourhood you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve stepped back in time. These
charming heritage homes are joined by a growing number of sleek, modern
apartments that seemingly pop up overnight in answer to the area’s growing
demand for stylish housing solutions. And with the city and the beach so close,
it’s no wonder that South Melbourne is in such high demand.
