Coming to Melbourne for a business trip, family trip, weekend getaway or girls-weekend? Whatever your reason for coming to Melbourne, it’s best to live it like a local and stay in somewhere that ticks all the boxes: safe, close to the city, convenient and liveable.
Moonee Ponds is one of our favourite suburbs of Melbourne and, in this post, the locals from StayCentral tell us why you should consider Moonee Ponds accommodation for your next Melbourne trip!
1. Close to the city
Moonee Ponds is just a 10- to 15-minute drive to the city and has easy access to buses and trams. This makes Moonee Ponds a great location if you’re looking to be close to the city without being right in it. It gives you a chance to see a part of Melbourne that perhaps you normally wouldn’t. And there’s plenty to see and do in Moonee Ponds too – more about that below.
2. Has a quiet, residential vibe
Want the best of both worlds? Close to the city, while still having a nice, peaceful, residential atmosphere? Save Moonee Ponds in your Google Maps searches, because this desirable Melbourne neighbourhood is just that. Moonee Ponds is a true taste of suburban Melbourne life, with its quiet streets but also its bustling retail and café strip.
3. Beautiful surroundings
It’s important to be in a suburb that’s not only convenient but also pleasant. Moonee Ponds is a beautiful neck of the woods, with its number of lush, green parks and reserves. Maribyrnong Park is a favourite among locals, along with Queens Park and Ormond Park. The Moonee Valley Racecourse is another iconic location, frequented by punters and race enthusiasts.
4. Everything you need, at your fingertips
If you’re after convenience, Moonee Ponds has got you covered. Convenience stores, supermarkets and superstores like Kmart are all right in the centre of the suburb. You’re also spoiled for choice on the restaurant and café front. Did we mention the proximity to public transport? Oh, yeah. We did.
5. More affordable than other inner-city suburbs
Another big perk of being situated in Moonee Ponds while on your trip to Melbourne is its affordability. Accommodation is often more affordable than other inner-city suburbs like Prahran and Fitzroy. Why? We couldn’t tell you, but just go with it!
