About Port Melbourne

Port Melbourne is a diverse suburb which has undergone major transformations since its first settlement back in 1839. From its prominent beginnings as a thriving transport hub during the 1850's gold rush in which it was home to many migrant and wharf workers, it has now become one of Melbourne's most sought after places to live for all age groups.

With its fantastic position along Port Phillip Bay and its close proximity to the CBD, Port Melbourne has rejuvenated into a stylish cosmopolitan locality. As well as the picturesque setting of the beach and its sweeping vistas of the bay, many people are attracted to Bay Street's great mix of boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants. Port Melbourne is truly unique in offering Bayside living so close to the CBD.

Port Melbourne is home to a diverse community with fantastic facilities such as its beaches, parks and gardens, and excellent transport. The well-situated 109 light rail shuttles between Port Melbourne and the city and provides an easy trip within ten minutes.

A fantastic mix of old and new homes make up Port Melbourne, with older heritage homes nestled between modern homes and developments. Garden City has a wonderful British charm which features historic 1930's bank homes in a unique public open plan style.
