Melbourne’s waterfront suburb, Docklands, is home to the city’s modern harbour, today’s technology park and business centre, and a vast accommodation offering.
It is also home to Melbourne’s main tourist attractions and a newly developed shopping, entertainment, dining and lifestyle destination, The District Docklands. Docklands is situated adjacent to Southern Cross Station, the public transport hub of Melbourne serving over 1.2 million people every week and Victoria’s primary metropolitan, regional and airport gateway.
As Docklands continues to grow and the range of visitor amenities available expands,
the harbourside suburb is fast becoming the destination of choice for visitors from
near and far.

• 22% of all overnight international visitors to Victoria, visit Docklands
• 2.8 million people live within a drive time of under 45 minutes from The District
Docklands, that’s over 75% of the metropolitan Melbourne population
