Just 10 minutes up Bridge Rd 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 Federation Square, Flinders St station and all the prime shopping areas and fascinating laneways of central Melbourne.

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 Bridge Road in Richmond at your doorstep or a few minutes further on exciting Swan Street - or a short tram ride to 'little Asia' in famous Victoria St.

Everything is within a stroll. Breakfast in the cafes. Dine at the restaurants or mix with the locals down River St at The Royston Hotel or The Goats Head Brewery or cross Bridge Rd to the local Italian 'Romulus + Remus'. For that morning coffee and breakfast walk one block down Bridge Rd to Niche for great food and friendly service.

You can sit and eat breakfast while the world goes by: locals, visitors, the rumble of Melbourne trams.

Other favourites in Bridge Road are Touchwood cafe with a modern paleo style menu and LadyBoy asian restaurant a little further on (absolutely fabulous food and wine list).

My family has certainly enjoyed the stay here as it feels like home. We appreciated all the furnishings and utensils that made our stay very comfortable. The Myki cards are a great tool. Thanks so much for the experience.

Dear Jenny, We have had a great time staying in the apartment. Everything we needed was here. The location is fantastic - Bridge Rd tram nearby, quick trip into Melbourne. Kids loved using the pool everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely family getaway! My husband and I and our two year old loved staying at Riviera. She was a huge fan of the heated pool and the lovely comfy couches and big tv. We loved the convenient location, comfy couches and little touches like the wine and myki cards and coffee machine. Jenny was lovely and made us feel right at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Richmond Apartment Stay We were most appreciative of the many small details which made this apartment welcoming and comfy. The wine and chocolate upon arrival were delightful. It is a sunny and warm space, filled with light and colour. I would love to stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding This property is everything that is claimed of it by the owner and other reviewers. It's location in Richmond is convenient to everything Melbourne has to offer by means of the nearby tram yet is close enough to the Yarra and parks to allow for recreational walks. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two car spaces and North facing balconies with views means that this apartment is ideal for both short and long term stays. Jenny's accomodating flexibility and forethought in preparing the "welcome package" in the fridge and cupboards full of condiments meant it felt like a home away from home as soon as we arrived. I highly recommend Riviera Riverside to you as I have to all my friends.
