Docklands is slowly becoming a lifestyle mecca


Docklands is an inner city revival. Docklands is the trendiest Inner Western hub of Melbourne, and some people refer to this area as still being in town. Needless to say, Docklands is still a suburb in its own right. Hold onto your hat, Docklands is windy. In fact, the windiest suburb in Melbourne.

Once an area that serviced solely freight ships, Docklands is slowly becoming the second Southbank with residential apartment developments en masse, combined with some interesting street art and architecture combined.
