Blog: Why Stay In Richmond?
If you are planning at stay in Melbourne, you need to experience "real Melbourne" - the inner city lifestyle ranging from funky cafes, grungy street art, live music and bargain shopping. Richmond is the first suburb east of the city centre. It's walking distance to MCG (Aussie Rules football and cricket) and Rod Laver Arena (Australian Open tennis and live music), and all other major attractions. Richmond is the cutting edge of the cafe scene with seriously good food and coffee. It's central and close to anything that matters in Melbourne. CMA allows you to live in a small share house (rather than feeling you room has a revolving door...). We are 2 minutes walk from the supermarket, cafes, weekend markets and bargain fashion. Oh, and come and visit "Little Audrey", Richmond's iconic skipping girl, she is Australia's first neon sign and has been lighting up the sky since 1936!
