One of the World’s great sporting cities
For over 100 years Melbourne has celebrated a rich sporting history which continues well into the 21st century.
The MCG was the home of the 1956 Olympics, 2006 Commonwealth Games and annually hosts the Aussie Rules Grand Final and cricket’s Boxing Day Test. Nearby Melbourne Park is the home of the Australian Open, one of only 4 tournaments to make up tennis' Grand Slam. Motor sports fans are spoilt with the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix on the beautiful Albert Park street circuit and both the Moto GP and Superbikes at Phillip Island. The highlight of the colourful Spring Racing Carnival is the famous Melbourne Cup, 'the race that stops the nation'.
The non-professional sportsperson is not left out either with a vast range of sporting activities and venues easily accessible including clean sandy beaches, tennis centres, championship golf courses, beautiful jogging/bike paths and much more.
Melbourne’s CBD is regarded as Australia’s premier shopping precinct. Easily accessed by foot, tram, train or bus, shoppers can find everything from fresh fruit and bargain apparel at Queen Victoria Market, to Australia’s original department store (MYER), to designer boutiques on Collins St, to factory outlets at DFO Spencer.
Melbourne’s inner city is very fortunate to be ringed by a series of beautiful parks and gardens that provide a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Well known parks include the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kings Domain, historic Fitzroy Gardens, Albert Park & Lake and the new Birrarung Marr along the northern banks of the Yarra River.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Clean, quiet and convenient accommodation .
We recently stayed for a week in this Hawthorn East townhouse and found it to be the perfect spot for us. Having previously stayed in a Quest serviced apartment we would never bother again. The owners live next door which is handy if you have any problems. The living and kitchen area was spacious and has a great gas fire that kept the place warm. There were two decent sized bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom. Everything was clean and adequate. It is situated in quiet area that we found to be very convenient to everything.
It is lust like your own home.
The service is good as the owners just live next door. The home is spacious with open plan kitchen dining and lounge room. The home is
close to amenities like the shopping center with handy Coles supermarket inside. The Melbourne CBD is not too far away. The place is very clean and the location is very quiet and peaceful.
The best we stayed in Melbourne
We stayed at the Birds Court several times (summer and winter) and have enjoyed very much the warm welcome of the hosts. It is a two-story townhouse, cozy and comfy, very clean and pleasant to spend with a family. The location is great - on a quite court, surrounded by trees and greenery - calm and tranquility is assured. Transport to the city, regional shopping centres, etc. is very easy with bus station, trams and trains - all in a walking distance (parking was not an issue either when we had a car). We recommend it very much!
