MELBOURNE'S EVENT PRECINCT

MELBOURNE EVENT PRECINCT
Just a few minutes up Swan St on the tram, you are at the edge of the MCG, sporting icon of Australia, centred in green parklands beside the Yarra River. Adjacent is the Rod Laver Arena, site of the largest Tennis tournament in the world. Opposite is the brand new "Bubble Building": AAMI soccer and rugby stadium. The area is also buzzing with entertainment events year round.

A few minutes further on, and you are at Princes Gate, entry to downtown Melbourne if you want to shop.

Or if art is of interest, visit the Victorian Gallery just across the bridge, the largest in the southern hemisphere, but also do not miss the Potter Gallery the fabulous collection of indigenous art in the quirky Federation Square building, a unique maze of crazy glass and stone.
You can easily lose a day in Melbourne: cruise the Yarra, see the city from the observation deck, visit Victoria Market and enjoy the colourful restaurants lining Southbank on the river edge.

But also leave some time to discover Swan St in Richmond at your doorstep.

Everything is within a stroll. Breakfast in the cafes. Dine at the restaurants. "Torch" across the road in Swan St has the best coffee in

Melbourne (well, we think so). You can sit and eat breakfast while the world goes by: locals, visitors, the rumble of Melbourne trams. Get to

know Dan the friendly owner. Or venture in to one of the edgy cafes and have vodka with breakfast!

Up the hill there is a clutter of Greek restaurants. One called Agapi ("love" in Greek) is usually full for the obvious reason that its food is fabulous and you will find the waiters have an engaging comic irony. Grandma Funks next door has lurid retro colours and good cheap food. Back
closer to your house, Wild Oscars serves music with meals.

Choose one of Melbournes best pubs and clubs: "Public House", voted best pub in Melbourne, is just around the corner and there are another 5 to choose from, most with live music.

A Melbourne secret is Der Raum a dark modernist bar nearby with world awards for best bar.

GUEST COMMENTS FROM OUR GUESTBOOK

Fantastic location. All the family enjoyed every minute in this comfortable house!

The "Alto Richmond" was absolutely fantastic. All requirements needed were met. It was also a fabulous location, tram stop on the corner and a Coles Supermarket across from that. I would highly recommend it.

Alto Richmond is rated 4.88 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect position Excellent accommodation! The position is perfect for easy access to public transport. We chose Alto because we needed to bring our dog with us and that worked very well. There is a dog friendly park not far away so we made the most of that too. Thank you to Rex, the owner, for his helpfulness and prompt communication.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding Location We thoughly enjoyed our stay, outstanding location ( close to transport, shopping and services ). The apartment was well appointed and provided everything we needed for a family of 5. We were even able to watch the NYE midnight fireworks for the balcony which was worth the cost of the stay by its self.  We thank Rex for his hospitality and will definitely stay again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent location and great property We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Alto Richmond- a comfortable and stylish self contained townhouse. Great location, seconds from shops and trams to take you wherever you want to go. We will definitely be back to the Alto!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely accommodation in a wonderful location We had a wonderful time staying in this property. I didn’t realise what an ideal location it had – with Torch café at the end of the street for breakfast, lovely parks to walk in, and so close to the Melbourne CBD, the MCG and to Bridge Road. Having some extra space was also ideal for us. With 4 friends, it was very relaxing being able to spread out and have a cuppa on the balcony. Most of all, we appreciate Rex's (the owner) flexibility and service. Everything combined to make our trip away really wonderful. I would absolutely recommend The Alto, Richmond to our friends, and I look forward to staying there again next time we visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We can thoroughly recommend ALTO for accom in Melbourne! It is well located, beautifully presented and has everything you need. Rex was lovely to deal with - we will definitely be recommending it to our friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We (two couples) stayed at the Alto for the weekend to watch the Prelimanry Game at the MCG. We were looking for somewhere close to the MCG, Melbourne CBD and of course lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. The Alto is perfectly located. Everything is within walking distance- except the CBD, but it's only a short tram ride and who needs to go to the city when you are staying in Richmond!! Would highly recommend Alto - it's clean, modern with everything you need and Rex is an absolute delight to deal with. Will be back next year, and hopefully, this time...my team will be playing finals football.Adelaide fans.
