I love my neighbourhood (and I think you will too), but I travel away a lot for work. Sometimes I'll be there for any tips or directions, other times not - but you can always contact me, and notes on some of my favourites will always be in the guidebook here!
This studio is just 40 metres off Smith Street, the boundary between inner-urban hotspots Collingwood and Fitzroy. Now firmly established as Melbourne's gastronomic hub, there are literally dozens of lively and renowned cafes, bars, restaurants and live music venues to choose from within 0-5 minutes walk. Collingwood maintains it's gritty, grungy, ethnically diverse feel despite some gentrification, with an astonishing array of sights, sounds, individuals and businesses to entertain you. Some local maps and guides are provided for your use - but don't forget to check out my exhaustively researched guidebook suggestions I've made here!
An #86 line (Bundoora-Docklands) tram stop (stop #18) is 40 metres away, 10 minutes to Bourke St. Collingwood train station is 12 minutes walk east. Taxi fares to/from the airport are around $53, or catch the Skybus to Southern Cross Station in the city, then Tram 86 (outside) or cab from there. Walk to the city centre, Melbourne university, MCG and Rod Laver arena in under 20 minutes. Street parking is tight but possible, a 24/7 resident's street parking permit may be supplied, at cost. A number of share-car services like Go-Get are available nearby.
The studio comes with full sized fridge and oven, 2-burner ceramic stovetop, cutlery and crockery, microwave, washing machine and dryer, hairdryer, Bluetooth sound system and 32" TV with HDMI cable-in. The queen bed has electric blankets, and the couch can be made up as an additional single bed if required ($25/night extra). Outside, supermarkets, bakeries, banks, cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, op-shops and boutiques of Smith and Gertrude streets are right on your doorstep. Brunswick St, Fitzroy Gardens (Fitzroy), Melbourne Museum, Carlton Gardens, Lygon St (Carlton), Victoria St (Richmond) and St Vincent's Hospital are all just 5-10 minutes walk away. An #86 tram stop is 40m away, or it's a 15-20 minute walk to the city centre, Melbourne University, the MCG, and Rod Laver Arena.
Please treat my place (and my neighbours) as if they were your own. Minimise your impact and especially avoid slamming doors (anytime), loud music or raucous conversation at night. No pets, and strictly no smoking inside or close by outside please. If you drop food or spill drinks anywhere, please clean up. Please also empty bins, wash dishes, put them away, and check cupboards for your belongings before you leave. Thanks!

A well-established professional consultant in the sciences/tech field, I work and travel all over Australia and the world, particularly South America and Central Asia. Have been addicted to travel since my first big trips to Nepal and Namibia decades ago. Intrigued by all the world has to offer, I'm an independent, often solo and reverse-seasonal traveller who settled in Melbourne 7 years ago - and just love it! Food, coffee, people-watching, live music, grunge or class, and stunning natural surrounds, a city with everything . . . Also enjoy mountain and desert wilderness experiences, bluewater ocean voyages, and edge-of-comfort zone motorcycle expeditions to all sorts of places. It's all out there waiting for you!
