The arts precinct indeed


Southbank is a trendy suburb. What Southbank is to Melbourne is what Sydney is to Pyrmont. Just like Sydney's Darling Harbour, this area has a casino with an abundance of restaurants. This area is also home to many street performers.

The majority (it feels like all) single males in Melbourne choose to live in this area. Views of the city are enjoyed from your apartment, and if you live fairly high up - your wet hair will be dry in less than 30 seconds. This area can be quite windy at times.

This area spells luxe and convenience for professionals who have hardly any time for work, and in lieu of this - they prefer to party instead.
