This chic and fashionable inner city suburb of Melbourne combines art deco architecture and snazzy shopping with big green spaces and secluded back streets. Among the Toorak Tractors (expensive SUVs) and exclusive designer outlets, you’ll also find discreet little bistros and quiet cafés where you and your partner can disappear for a day or two. While South Yarra’s elegant terraced houses and eclectic collection of retailers gives the area a village feel, this is also the location of some of Melbourne’s most expensive residential real estate, and your boutique hotel may well have a millionaire or two as neighbours.
Not that a stay in this part of town needs to break the budget. You can wander for hours amid the colourful chaos of Prahran Market, where fresh produce sits cheek by jowl with some splendid cafés and inglenook eateries. You can stroll down quiet, leafy back streets into the luxuriant green spaces of the Melbourne Botanic, or cross Toorak Road (mind the tractors!) to Faulkner Park. And if, by chance, you need a fix of big city action, the centre of Melbourne, with all its heady delights and pleasures is just a ten minute tram-ride away.
