A new gateway for Melbourne

With rapid urban renewal looking west and northwards, Docklands is the new gateway for Melbourne, well connected to public transport, major highways and Melbourne’s network of cycling trails.

Major CBD thoroughfares such as Collins Street and Bourke Street now converge into the Docklands waterfront with tram lines connecting to The District Docklands within the Free Tram Zone. North Melbourne and Southern Cross Stations are also within close proximity. The international airport is just 30 minutes away, be it by car or Skybus.

With the nearest large fresh food markets located north and south of the CBD, The District Docklands is perfectly placed to attract the available fresh food spend in the CBD and surrounds, and the growing catchment of local customers in the city’s west.
