MYKI cards are supplied for public transport, just top up as you go.
The Botanic Gardens and Shrine of Remembrance are at the top of the street, along with the famous Tan walking/jogging track.
Explore South Melbourne, famous for once having a hotel on nearly every corner to cater for the "six o'clock swill" of the 1960’s!
Melbourne Aquatic Centre with wave pool, spas, squash courts and more is a short walk away at Albert Park Lake.
There is a Melbourne bike share station on our street corner too.
For breakfast, you're welcome to help yourself to tea/coffee, cereal and toast.

A supermarket and bottle shop is a handy 50 metres away. There's a barbecue on the balcony too.

And just in case it rains (in Melbourne??) there are plenty of new and old movies, books, Kindle and audio books for your phone/ipad and board games to keep you entertained.
Interaction with Guests
The whole apartment is available for guests to utilise, except of course my bedroom and ensuite. I am home most nights, watching my new favourite TV series or a movie.
Clarendon Street is a short walk and has something for everyone - beautiful wide streets and footpaths, cobblestone lanes, lots of restaurants, cafes and bars, eclectic shopping, a great market, it's much more local and friendly, and still within walking or tram distance of the city.
Catch a #55 tram at my door step to take you straight to Melbourne Convention Centre, Southbank and Crown Casino, the Aquarium, the city centre, then on to Queen Victoria Market and even Melbourne Zoo. Hop off at he river for waterside walk to Exhibition Centre, South Wharf. The domain interchange tram stop is just two minutes away, where you can catch trams to almost anywhere in inner Melbourne. It takes just ten minutes to almost everything - for the city, Federation Square, Southbank and major sporting venues, take any tram northbound. For St Kilda it's #16, Chapel Street #6, Toorak Road #8.
For drivers, it's two minutes to Citylink, twenty to the airport.
Street parking is free overnight and on weekends.
