Welcome to South Melbourne, Port Melbourne & Albert Park
The well-heeled trio of South Melbourne, Port Melbourne and Albert Park isn't short on lunching ladies, AFL stars and Porsche-steering Lotharios living it up in grandiose Victorian terraces and bayside condos. Leafy and generally sedate, the area boasts some of Melbourne's most beautiful heritage architecture, both civic and domestic. South Melbourne is the busiest neighbourhood, with a bustling market, cult-status cafes and sharply curated design stores. Albert Park offers culture in a former gasworks, while Port Melbourne's home to Station Pier, from where ferries shoot south to Tasmania.
