My place is just back from Swan Street, near the Corner Hotel and Richmond's many pubs, cafes and restaurants.
It's around the corner from Richmond railway station, so travelling into the CBD and around Melbourne is quick and easy.
The MCG, Melbourne Park (Tennis Centre) and AAMI Park are a short walk away (or tram trip). It's easy to get to the Australian Open, AFL, cricket, rugby, soccer and Melbourne's many other events.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
