Melbourne Docklands

Melbourne Docklands is one of Melbourne’s newest communities, changing the face of the traditional CBD and enhancing Melbourne’s connection with its waterfront.

It is one of Australia’s largest urban renewal projects. As it enters  its second decade of development, it is rapidly making the transition from a construction project to a community. This $12 billion development comprises 200 hectares of land and water.

This vibrant destination is being developed in stages with a vision to create a sustainable, mixed-use area of public waterfront space where people can live, work and visit.

Melbourne Docklands is continually evolving and already offers world class sporting events, entertainment, shopping, harbourside dining and spectacular public art. It is a place for locals to live, work, and visit and a popular tourist destination.

At completion, Melbourne Docklands is expected to become:

  • a home for 17,000
  • a workplace for 40,000 people in a wide variety of employment
  • a tourist destination for approximately 20 million people per year
