Docklands has a high violent crime rate and a high property crime rate for Melbourne.


Docklands is located 2 kilometers west of the Melbourne CBD. Most residents are young professionals who are single or couples without kids who work nearby. The architecture in Docklands is beautiful, shiny, and ultra-chic: a reflection of the high-flying business types that live here. The suburb has no particular entertainment strip, but it doesn’t need one since since plenty of options are only a few minutes away by tram.

In addition to its architecture, Docklands is known for its stunning waterfront views and proximity to shopping, entertainment, dining, business, parks, sporting events, community events, arts and culture. On any given night, the Docklands’ Telstra and Ethiad Stadiums and pubs are filled to the brim with Australian rules football fans.

Most residents live in what seems to be an endless stream of pricey modern apartments and semi-detached townhomes. Still, residents say that a prime location, along with beautiful water and city views, make living in Docklands worth the price.

Docklands is bordered on West Melbourne, on the north by North Melbourne, on the east by the Melbourne CBD, and on the south by the Yarra River.
