"Highly recommended"
Left on Mar 17, 2020 for a stay in Mar 2020
Fantastic location close to many arts and cultural institutes, a short walk from the NGV. The apartment is gorgeous, great view and the host was incredibly helpful. Impeccably clean and comfortable for a family.

Perfect for four, NGV Arts Centre Retreat at Southbank includes high quality furnishings and appliances, linen, beautiful bath towels, and a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and coffee machine, and your own, private laundry facilities. There's also a cot and high chair available for a small fee if needed. (Don't forget to bring linen for the cot). Centrally heated and cooled, you will be comfortable all year round. There is undercover, secure parking for one vehicle. There is a long, undercover balcony with table and chairs, and views over parts of the nearby Arts Precinct, towards Port Phillip Bay in the distance. The apartment includes a large 60" TV, comfortable lounge and dining setting.
 
The two bathrooms and two queen bedrooms on separate sides of the apartment provide ideal privacy for two couples, or for mum and dad and two children. No need to share bathrooms in this high-rise retreat.
 
All tea, coffee, toiletries, washing and cleaning products and other welcome supplies can be found in the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. You will need to purchase more of these consumables if you need them for the rest of your stay. 
 
(Note from the owner: we fell in love with this beautiful apartment from the first moment we viewed it. It's a fantastic building and is convenient/accessible to everything. The number 1 tram which runs past the building, goes directly to the centre of Melbourne and as far as Lygon Street Carlton, or to the South Melbourne market in the other direction. The roof top area on the 22nd floor has amazing 360 degree views of Port Phillip bay and Melbourne CBD. We love staying there and we hope you will too.)

We have multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations.

Pet stays
Not all properties are pet-friendly, however, we offer a number of beautiful homes that are happy to welcome furry family members. Please let us know if you require accommodation to suit pets as this requires approval prior to booking. Should this home not be suitable for your pets, we will be happy to recommend some alternatives.

LOCATION:
The address is 152 Sturt St, Southbank, and has a Walk Score of 84 out of 100.
 
Your Southbank corporate apartment is brilliantly and centrally located; very close to the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria), the Arts Centre, Melbourne Theatre Company, Hamer Hall, St Kilda Road, the Melbourne Recital Centre & Melbourne city shopping. Some of the best shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars in Australia are on your doorstep, with a short walk (or tram ride) into the city.
 
Melbourne CBD shopping centre, the Bourke Street Mall, Kings Domain Gardens, Federation Square, Crown Casino and the aquarium are all within easy walking distance. The tram stops are just out the front on Sturt St. You can enjoy a walk to some of the best-known sporting venues, markets and arts venues in the country. 
Here are just a few examples of local attractions which are an easy walk or a very quick tram ride away:

Southbank and Southgate Promenade shops, restaurants and cafes; right on the river

The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV International)

Southbank to Port Melbourne, South Melbourne or South Yarra - great for walking, jogging, bike riding or rollerblading. Southbank promenade forms part of the Capital City Bicycle Trail, which circles the Melbourne city centre and some inner eastern and northern suburbs. A popular starting point for the trail is at Princes Bridge near Flinders Street Station. Bikes can be hired near the boathouses east of the bridge.

The Yarra River is a great way to see the city and hear about its history. The river cruises show you and tell you so much about the city.

Ballet, Opera and Live Theatre at the State Theatre & Concert Hall

Victorian College of the Arts & Melbourne Recital Centre

Crown Entertainment Complex, with its cinemas, shopping, restaurants and Casino

Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (Jeff's Shed)

Melbourne Convention Centre

Melbourne Aquarium; on the river's edge

Federation Square with its galleries, exhibitions, restaurants and many cultural events

Flinders Street Station is identical to one in Calcutta, India.

Southern Cross Station 

CBD shopping including Elizabeth St, Bourke St mall, Collins St and Flinders Lane

Melbourne Maritime Museum (Polly Woodside)

Immigration Museum

Eureka Skydeck and "The Edge"

Shopping at Clarendon St, South Melbourne


Getting There
If you are coming by tram, take the No. 1 tram from Swanston St in the city, or from St Kilda Road in front of the NGV or the Arts Centre (heading away from the city). As it turns right off St Kilda Road and turns left into Sturt St, get off at tram stop No. 18, which is just past No. 152.
Getting Around
Trams stop out the front, and they will take you anywhere you want to go. Direct routes go to Albert Park, and connect to St Kilda or back into the City and St Kilda Road around the corner, where you can connect to anywhere.
You can walk through the Arts Precinct to the CBD shopping and Flinders St Station nearby, across St Kilda Road to the Domain and Kings Gardens or back to the Botanical Gardens & the Moonlight Cinema.
