South Yarra

Suburb Profile

Overview

From designer boutiques to a booming drinking and dining scene (complete with the possibility for late-night revelry), South Yarra has it all. A foodie hotspot, a clubbing mecca, a shopper’s paradise and a luxe residential area – there’s truly something for everyone in this prestigious yet diverse Melbourne neighbourhood.

Lifestyle

In equal parts polished and trendy; South Yarra is a real crowd pleaser. For young families, there are tree-lined streets, impressive schools and spacious homes. For the old guard, there’s the area’s long-standing prestige, stately abodes and a fine dining scene. For the younger crowd, there’s buzzing Chapel Street with all its eating, drinking, dancing and shopping delights on hand. Needless to say, this is a highly sought after postcode.

An established suburb with an impressive pedigree, South Yarra has long been a favourite with Melbourne’s well heeled. Refined Toorak Road offers high-end stores, glamorous restaurants and a sleek café culture, while Domain Road brings a more low-key park-centric feel. Close to the CBD and offering its residents a luxurious lifestyle of fine dining, designer boutiques, lush green spaces and stately homes, it comes as no surprise that South Yarra boasts some of the city’s most expensive real estate.

Something of a Melbourne icon, lively Chapel Street with its younger demographic brings a whole new feel to the mix. Starting in Windsor and stretching through to Prahran, the bulk of this celebrated strip lies in South Yarra. With its mix of hip bars, restaurants and late-night clubs, it has brought a welcome lively and eclectic feel to the area.

The Market

With some of the highest property prices in Melbourne, South Yarra is in demand and very expensive. Its lush, leafy streets are home to a host of historic mansions and Victorian terraces, as well as stylish, character-filled Art Deco flats. More recently, a number of brand new apartment buildings and developments have been added to the mix, along with trendy warehouse conversions towards the Windsor end of Chapel Street. It seems that everyone wants a piece of South Yarra’s magic.
