(Note from Owner: whilst Melbourne is our home, we currently live overseas and bought this apartment to enjoy when we often stay in Melbourne. It has been furnished to be a comfortable “home away from home” rather than just a serviced apartment. So it is a really great place to stay, and super comfortable. You can enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony (Melbourne weather permitting) whilst taking in the view of nearby Melbourne city. We also love the trams right out front, so it is so easy to get around. You can wander across the road to the Southbank Promenade with all the great restaurants, a short walk to South Melbourne Market for some delicious food, or take a tram ride into the city or to Port Melbourne to enjoy the beach. It is really a perfect place for to enjoy Melbourne!
We have multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations.
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.
The address is 79 Whiteman St, Southbank, and has a Walk Score of 97 out of 100. This location is a Walker’s Paradise so daily errands do not require a car. It is a one minute walk from the 109 Port Melbourne - Box Hill tram, the 12 Victoria Gardens - St Kilda (Fitzroy St) tram and the 96 St Kilda Beach - East Brunswick tram at the 125-Port Junction/79 Whiteman St (Southbank) stop. Nearby parks include Batman Park, Enterprize Park and Sturt Street Reserve.
Cityside is brilliantly located; just across the road from Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre and just across the Yarra River from Melbourne CBD. It's a very short walk to Crown Casino and the adjacent Southbank Promenade with its buskers, award-winning restaurants, cafes overlooking the river, and multiple, fashionable shops. Walk to the end of this, and find yourself in the Arts Precinct on St Kilda Road, and the nearby Federation Square and Flinders St Station.
Your StayCentral apartment is so close to so many things of interest. 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
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)

The easiest way to get to Cityside from anywhere is to get a taxi, Uber or Ola ride; including from Tullamarine Airport. Alternative transport from the airport is also relatively easy; take the Skybus from outside the airport terminal to Southern Cross train station in downtown Melbourne, then hop on Tram No. 96 a short way down Spencer St, or if it's a long wait till the next tram, you can take Tram No. 109 at the end of Collins St at the bottom end of the station.
Get off at 124A-Casino/MCEC/Clarendon St. It's a very short walk down to 79 Whiteman St (with the trams and narrow park on your right) to the Rivergarden Condos building. Full directions & instructions on how to access your apartment will be provided once your booking is confirmed with StayCentral.
The trams are just out front, and can take you to Port Melbourne, St Kilda, or the other way into the CBD and to wherever you want to from there; or you can just walk into the CBD quite easily. It is a one minute walk from the 109 Port Melbourne - Box Hill tram, the 12 Victoria Gardens - St Kilda (Fitzroy St) tram and the 96 St Kilda Beach - East Brunswick tram at the 125-Port Junction/79 Whiteman St (Southbank) stop. Also, if you only travel on the trams within the city grid, it's free, and you don't need a Myki card.
