As for its multicultural side, Melbourne is a mixture of everything from European to Asian influences. Melbourne's old architecture reflects European heritage. Scattered art-deco and street arts partly reminds people of New York. There is a diverse range of cuisines with Vietnamese food in Richmond, Lygon St in Carlton for old-school Italian, Brunswick for Middle Eastern, Footscray for African and Chinatown for all manner of Asian cuisines.

Uncovering Melbourne

Melbourne is a cosmopolitan with a sensational cityscape, statuesque architecture and Art Deco buildings, spectacular facades, contemporary towers and an exciting mix of multicultural cuisines are waiting to be experienced.


The city centre has a reputation for its historic and prominent lanes and arcades such as the Block Place and Royal Arcade where a variety of shops and cafés can be found. Melbourne CBD, compared with other Australian cities, has comparatively unrestricted height limits. As a result, it is now home to five of the seven tallest buildings in Australia. The tallest of which is the Eureka Tower, situated in Southbank, with the Rialto tower coming in close second. The CBD and surrounds also contain many significant historic buildings such as the Royal Exhibition Building, the Melbourne Town Hall and Parliament House. Melbourne is often referred to as Australia's garden city due to the abundance of parks and gardens close to the CBD. These parks are often considered the best public parks in all of Australia's major cities.


Some of Australia's most prominent and well known schools are based in Melbourne. Six out of the top twenty high schools in Australia are located in Melbourne. According to the Better Education rankings, Melbourne was also ranked the world's fourth top university city in 2008 after London, Boston and Tokyo. The city is home to the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology as well as seven other public universities: the University of Melbourne, Monash University, La Trobe University, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT University), Deakin University, Swinburne University of Technology and Victoria University.

There are also many major medical, neuroscience and biotechnology research institutions located in Melbourne: St. Vincent's Institute of Medical Research, Australian Stem Cell Centre, the Burnet Institute, Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Victorian Institute of Chemical Sciences, Brain Research Institute, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, and the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre.

Parking in Melbourne

Apart from the famous landmarks and attractions in Melbourne, it also has a highly diversified economy with particular strengths in finance, manufacturing, research, IT, education, logistics, transportation and tourism. Melbourne houses the headquarters of many of Australia's largest corporations. In the 2017 Global Financial Centres Index, Melbourne was ranked as having the 21st most competitive financial center in the world. Melbourne has an integrated public transport system based around extensive train, tram, bus and taxi systems.To accomodate private vehicles, Melbourne has a network of freeways and arterial roadways.

Melbourne has minimal public housing and the high population growth is generating large demand for rental housing. This housing boom has increased house prices and rentals, as well as the availability of all types of accommodation. According to the Australian 2016 Census, more people prefer living in apartments because of affordability and proximity to the central business district. In Southbank, 98 percent of 18,000 residents live in an apartment while just 14 people live in detached homes. In Docklands, the statistics were away of only three detached house dwellers. With more people choosing to downsize, finding available parking in high-density properties is difficult. Especially for those residing in the outer suburbs due to the high expense of city living, private vehicles remain a necessity for some. Public parking is sometimes provided but are not always readily available.

Despite this seeming lack of parking solutions, a large number of residential and commercial property owners have unused parking spaces. Spacer provides a large list of hosts with existing, unutilised carports, driveways and garages that you can rent for just a fraction of the cost of commercial parking spaces. These parking slots are usually located a few minutes away from your home. We also provide opportunities for people with underutilised spaces at home to earn extra by renting to those who need it. Spacer aims to create a harmonious sharing community where hosts and renters meet.
