From your new home at Yarra House, you can walk to classes at Melbourne Polytechnic in a matter of minutes. When you want to explore the rest of the city, hop on the bus at one of the nearby stops, or walk 15 minutes to Dennis station, where regular trains offer a 10 minute service to the city centre. Get up early for breakfast with the koalas at Melbourne Zoo, or lose yourself amongst the sprawling fresh produce stalls of iconic Queen Victoria Market.
After a busy day, come home to your room at Yarra House for a well-earned rest. Stop to greet your friends on your way through the lobby lounge, then push open the door to your apartment and set your bags down on the bed. Grab a drink from the bar fridge and enjoy it out on the balcony, before switching on the aircon and settling down to study at your desk. Use the high speed internet to research your assignments; or brainstorm a group project in the communal study areas.
With work out the way, drop your clothes off at the laundry, before heading to the games room to catch up with your friends. Try your hand at table tennis, get caught up in a pool tournament, or simply kick back and relax on the comfy couches. Later, whip up something tasty for dinner in the newly refurbished communal kitchens, or get together with neighbours around the garden barbecue and eat out under the stars. For a fun night out in the neighbourhood, head for the nearby Grandview Hotel for a karaoke session.
