Nestled on the southern bank of the Yarra River, a mere 4km from Melbourne's CBD, South Yarra is considered one of the city's most diverse and affluent suburbs.
The vibrant lifestyle precinct and wide range of lavish riverside homes designed by some of Melbourne’s most esteemed architects (from Victorian-style terraces and historic mansions to contemporary apartment complexes), make this highly sought-after neighbourhood a crowd pleaser. Oozing charm and charisma, South Yarra is brimming with designer boutiques, eateries sure to indulge any palate, buzzing bars and clubs, quirky art galleries, established schools, lush green spaces and extensive public transport services.
South Yarra accommodates all ages and lifestyles – from young professionals to families. The exciting café, restaurant, bar/club scene appeals to the youth, the comfortable lifestyle and reputable schools (including Melbourne Girls Grammar School, Melbourne Grammar School and Melbourne High School) appeals to families and the high standard of living appeals to older residents.
If you're in the mood for a refined dining experience or an indulgent shopping spree Toorak Road has you covered, offering high-end stores, celebrated restaurants and lively cafes. Alternatively, you can visit the buzzing Chapel Street – one of Melbourne’s most iconic strips, known for fashion, food, entertainment and style. Prahran Market is also a must-see, where you can find a tantalising range of fresh produce and gourmet delights.
For those that want to escape the bustle, take a stroll through the tranquil Fawkner Park or Royal Botanical Gardens.
Remaining on Melbourne’s list of top growth suburbs, ever-expanding South Yarra is forecast to grow in appeal and value.
