Let us entertain you!

The Southbank entertainment precinct features Crown Casino and Southgate. Set on the banks of the Yarra River, Southbank overlooks Flinders Street Station and from the city slowly makes its way towards Docklands. Southgate is the entrance to the Arts Precinct and is adjacent to the Melbourne Arts Centre. Southgate includes a select few boutique shops and restaurants.

The Crown Casino complex boasts designer stores, the Crown Casino, nightclubs, restaurants, cinemas and entertainment events. A person can be lost for days. The Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre (aka Jeff’s Shed) is next along the river and plays host to ACEC2010: Digital Diversity conference. A leisurely walk along Southbank can fill a morning and possibly entice you into a full day of entertainment.

Located in the fashionable bayside suburb of St Kilda, the historic Luna Park perches stridently upon the beach. As a Melbourne institution, a visit to Luna Park is a must when you visit. Just a short tram ride from the city, St Kilda also boasts a very happening fringe culture that fits nicely with the new fashionable set of the suburb.

Luna Park - a Melbourne seaside iconThere is so much to do in St Kilda on any day but Sunday seems to be the day where everyone makes a move on in. The Sunday Market attracts a curious crowd exploring local crafts while a relaxed few fill the outdoor bars and cafes. The active can always be seen rollerblading, bike riding and swimming their way around St Kilda.

St Kilda is just as dazzling at night as it is during the day, with it’s world famous restaurants such as The Stokehouse and Donovans and the die hard pub culture of the famous Esplanade Hotel and The Prince of Wales Hotel as they typically showcase quality bands.
