At District South Yarra, choose a one or two bedroom apartment. Whatever you go for, you’re a 15-minute train ride from Monash and La Trobe universities, and a three-minute walk from your nearest tram stop. On weekends, stroll across the road to South Yarra train station for the 15-minute hop to central Melbourne. Spend the day browsing the eclectic stalls at historic Queen Victoria Market, or sipping beer in the sunshine whilst watching Aussie Rules football at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
In between adventures, come home to your fully furnished apartment for a nap on your queen sized bed. When you wake up, raid the fridge for something to eat, then grab your iPod for a visit to nearby Fawkner Park. Practice your serve on the tennis courts, hit the jogging trails, or join a team on the cricket green before stopping for groceries at the Woolworths on your way home. After a refreshing shower, invite your friends over for a series marathon in front of your living room’s LCD TV.
Later, cook up a storm in the kitchen and sit down to eat around the dining table. Throw your dirty clothes into the washer dryer, then cue up your favourite tunes on the bluetooth speaker whilst searching through your wardrobe for an outfit to go out in. Check your look in front of the full-length mirror, then head to Leonard’s House of Love for log-cabin party vibes and 70s-inspired cocktails. Alternatively, try eclectic venue Chapel Off Chapel for cabaret, comedy, live music and theatre.
