"Close to CBD but without the noise and chaos!"

This review relates to the St Kilda Road side of Southbank rather than the Casino side. I lived there for approximately 2 years in 2005 and again in 2011. Southbank is one of my favourite places to stay at in Melbourne because it's close enough to the CBD (from my place on Sturt Street it took less 10 minutes on foot to the city) but not so close that you hear all the craziness at night! The precinct is relatively peaceful at all times. The only downside is that with so few commercial establishments, it's actually not easy to find something to eat if you need to get some take-away for the night or if you just want to pop out for some milk. There are convenience stores / express supermarkets around, but they tend to be a bit more expensive. Overall I loved living in Southbank! Now if only I could afford it...
