About the Area – Shadow Play by Peppers Melbourne
Shadow Play by Peppers offers Southbank premium apartment accommodation in a prime position – a coin toss from the Crown Casino & Entertainment Complex and a short walk to Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre – providing indulgence with access.
Next to the Convention Centre sits DFO South Wharf to fulfil all your shopping desires. The famous South Melbourne Markets are so close your artisan produce will still be fresh when you arrive back. Then head south along Clarendon Street to enjoy the parklands around Albert Park Lake, or splash around at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre. Follow the same road in the other direction and you’ll come to the Yarra River, which provides a buzz of activity including river boats passing by along with cafes, restaurants and bars lining the Southbank promenade.
Staying south of the river, you are within an easy walk of many of Melbourne’s best attractions, including Melbourne Arts Centre and the National Gallery of Victoria. From there you can cross St Kilda Road and enjoy the serene beauty of the Royal Botanic Gardens, pay your respects at The Shrine of Remembrance, or enjoy an outdoor concert at Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
In the heart of Melbourne city, Collins Streets exclusive shopping strip, is directly accessible from the tram stop on our doorstep. Make sure to view the historic Flinders Street Station, which provides a good vantage point to explore the best of this artistic city. Across the road is Federation Square or head further into town and explore the array of shopping centres including Bourke Street Mall. Or you may prefer to hop a tram to the delicious food offerings of Queen Victoria Market, or the trendy boutiques along Chapel Street.
