South Melbourne
South Melbourne 
An inner city suburb with plenty of variety and a great market. 

South Melbourne, Melbourne (inner south)

Young professionals, young families, singles, couples, media types, and people on welfare live in South Melbourne. This place started off as a working class suburb, and if it were not for the public housing, South Melbourne would be one toff of a place. Instead, it is diverse, interesting, convenient, has plenty of cafes and a great fresh food market. (More information below and to your left <<<)

South Melbourne is one of Melbourne's oldest suburbs. It has been home to new waves of migrants, has several public housing buildings, and in the 1980's went through a huge gentrification process. It's proximity to the city centre attracted scores of professionals who were keen to renovate the suburb's Victorian cottages and terraces.

There are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants in South Melbourne and most are on Clarendon St, which is the continuation of Spencer St in the city.

South Melbourne is close to Albert Park lake which is used by many for exercise... and sadly once a year by hoon heads for the Melbourne Grand Prix.

Parking can be tricky. Vibe: latte and fish and chips. Shoe equivalent: Aquila and Campers. Would suit: singles, couples, families, professionals. Location: inner city. Distance from city centre: 3km. Direction: south.
