Whether you’re drawn to Melbourne because of the amazing culture, unique world of sports or great weather (and don’t forget about the food!), you know how special this city is. And, because Melbourne has been making its way to the top of the charts in terms of livability, the secret is finally out and the floodgates are open. People from all over the world are putting Melbourne on their list of places to visit and live.

Melbourne’s population growth has skyrocketed over the past few years. Where there were once empty lots, there are now multi-home communities, parks, and schools. There are new residents moving here all the time, which is both a good thing and, sometimes, a headache.

If you’re on the lookout for a new flat, for instance, the market can be a bit of a challenge. Living spaces closer to the center - and now extending into the suburbs - tend to be made up of compact flats instead of multi-room homes. That’s not necessarily a bad thing (less to clean, right?) but it might mean that you have to downsize in order to live comfortably. Perhaps it’s not surprising that we find ourselves in a downsizing movement to get rid of our material items.

But, not all of us are willing to part with our belongings and memorabilia. They bring us happiness, even if they only come out of the box every once in a while.

This is exactly where Spacer wants to help. Whether you’re moving to or within Melbourne and need to cut down on your belongings or you’re ready to achieve the minimalist look but don’t want to sacrifice your boxes of treasures, you can store those items in a secure storage unit for an affordable price.

How Does It Work?

The Hosts on Spacer have extra room in their homes, garages, attics, and backyard sheds, where your belongings can stay for however long you need to store them. Whether you have just one small box or an entire roomful, you’ll be able to find an affordable, self-storage, Melbourne based unit, right in your neighborhood, to store your items. You can even store larger furniture pieces like bookshelves, tables, or stationary bikes.

Getting started is easy. We offer a ton of search filters, like distance to your home, square metres that you’ll need, how much security you’ll want, and more, so that you can find the best storage units Melbourne has to offer. Just enter in the dates that you’ll need to store your items and browse the listings. You’ll be able to see pictures of the space, special features, and any instructions or rules that the Host would like you to know.

Then, when you’ve found a space that suits you, simply request to book. Once you’ve been approved, normally within 24 hours, you’ll coordinate with the Host to set up a move-in time. We always suggest that you give yourself a bit of extra time to pack and make sure that all of your items are ready to go into storage. You can check out our blog posts on the best way to prep your items for storage, here.

For added security and convenience, all of the payments for your booking will go through our site. You can breathe easy knowing that the items you keep in Spacer-listed storage units are insured up to $10,000 and we offer a money-back guarantee. You can also contact us with any questions about your items, seven days a week.

The process is great for Hosts, too!

If you have a space in your home that is just gathering dust, why not make some cash with it instead? Clear out the cobwebs, take a few photos, write up a listing, and you’re good to go! It’s completely free to get started.

Listings that can add extra features, like security or CCTV, can make your space even more profitable and desirable.

You’ll be able to accept or decline offers from Renters as they come up, and you’ll have control over when they arrive and when they will have access to your space. We’ll take care of the not-so-fun details like payments, so that all you have to do is make the space available.

Melbourne is considered to be Victoria’s most liveable city, with an exciting mix of art galleries, packed sports calendar, diverse culture and world-class dining. Beyond the city limits, Melbourne offers spectacular wilderness and great food and wine experiences. Opportunities to explore are endless, with the natural landscapes both on the coast and inland.

Head down the many narrow laneways in Melbourne to find hidden restaurants and bold street art. Lined by hole-in-the-wall cafes, like those in Rome, these laneways offer not just a variety of food experiences, topped with buskers and street art, but a long colourful history carved into every old buildings and alleys. Six of the best Melbourne's laneways are Centre Place, Hosier Lane, AC/DC Lane, Tattersalls Lane, Meyers Place and Hardware Lane - all of which offers a variety of cuisines, shops and entertainment.

Exploring Melbourne

Melbourne's public transport system has great coverage for the central parts of the town. Though, bringing a car is the best and easiest way to explore the outskirts. From the culinary variety and exceptional street arts, to the endless wilderness of the eastern forest and the bright coastline, this is a city and a state that will exceed your highest expectations. Melbourne is marvelously multicultural, food obsessed and creative, the ideal place to live.


Melbourne is the unquestioned sporting capital of Australia with the largest arenas and two of the major sporting administrations basing their operation in Melbourne. Cricket Australia is a stone's throw from the MCG, and major AFL games are played at both the MCG and Etihad Stadium. Melburnians are sports enthusiasts and particularly passionate about Australian Rules football, a sport invented in Melbourne. In fact the Australian Football League (AFL) is so popular in Melbourne that 9 of the 10 Victorian teams are based in Melbourne. As a guide, the entire national competition only has 18 teams, meaning half the league is based in Melbourne alone. Horse racing is another passion, and the majority of the state has a public holiday on the first Tuesday of November for the world-renowned Melbourne Cup races. Cricket is the big summer sport and the Melbourne Cricket Ground MCG is one of the world's leading grounds.


The landscape of the Grampians is ruggedly beautiful. The Grampians region is made up of great sandstone mountains with breathtaking views, powerful waterfalls, wildlife, dazzling wildflower displays and awe-inspiring lookouts. It takes pride of their great wine and multi-awarded restaurants. It is home to Grampians National Park and a host to the wilderness.

Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is one of the world's best driving roads which curves along spectacular beaches and inland through rain forest. From there, check out the legendary surf of Bells Beach where you can either ride the wave or watch the world's best surfers over the Easter weekend. Venture through the Great Otway National Park to Cape Otway and see the most remote and beautiful rainforest, coastal scenery and the oldest lighthouse. Finally, reach the majestic and iconic golden cliffs and crumbling pillars of the Twelve Apostles.
