Melbourne Docklands

Melbourne Docklands

The 200-hectare Melbourne Docklands site has distinct precincts that are being developed progressively over time in an ever changing landscape.

The various precincts create a diversity of use, ranging from residential to retail, from technological to leisure, from offices to entertainment. Development is being strategically staged so each one complements its neighbour as well as the project in its entirety, ensuring Docklands offers something for everyone.

Melbourne Docklands is right on the city's doorstep and linked to the city by excellent public and private transport, and bicycle and pedestrian connections. Over the next few years the transport services to and from Melbourne Docklands will become even more extensive.


- Waterfront City - offers a unique experience for visitors, workers and residents, only 5 minutes from the CBD, 15 minutes from the airport and less than a 30 minute drive for over 60% of 3.6 million Melburnians. More...

- Docklands Studios - comprise five purpose-designed state-of-the-art air-conditioned sound stages of various sizes. Each studio will have production office facilities, make-up, wardrobe, green rooms, star dressing rooms, holding bays and extensive warehousing.

- NewQuay - The Palladio Tower (201 apartments) and Boyd Tower (168 apartments) were completed in late 2002 and NewQay opened its doors to the second influx of residents. NewQuay’s fourth tower – the Nolan (204 apartments) – is due for completion later this year. The first stage of the marina is now operating, with public berthing available, and ferry and water taxis operating seven days a week.

- Comtechport - concepts for innovative workspaces, home offices, training and open learning environments, conference facilities and associated retail outlets. This environment of extraordinary architecture will make Digital Harbour an open campus, with few lines between recreation, work, education and, in some cases, even competitors.

- Southern Cross Station [was Spencer Street Station] is the gateway to Victoria by bus and train. Situated next to Batman Hill Precinct and Etihad Stadium | More.

- Melbourne Star Observation Wheel - is far more than a ride on a giant observation wheel, although for most people that will be an entirely new experience in itself; it is a wholly new Melbourne experience and I believe it will become a must-do activity for locals and visitors alike. | More

- Harbour Town Shopping Centre under the wheel is Melbourne's newest shopping mecca. More..

- Victoria Harbour - 10 year development program includes 2,100 residential apartments , commercial office space, retail space, community facilities and development of public spaces e.g. Grand Plaza, Harbour Esplanade, Docklands Park and Central Pier.

- Batman's Hill - Large corporations such as the Bureau of Meteorology and Medibank Private are relocating to Batman’s Hill.

Includes: 700 Collins Street | Railway No.2 Goods Shed | Village Docklands | Watergate

- Yarra's Edge - North facing 2000 residential apartments. Yarra's Edge
