  • The Park stopped in Melbourne. Very nice Park Lawn, tree spacing, alignment, so there is a metropolitan city and a dignified remembrance, and this beautiful park view! Tram station, easy access. From the Flinders tried Station South to walk about 15 minutes!

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
