Left Bank Melbourne is located on the riverside of No.1 Southbank Boulevard, Southbank. The entrance to the venue is on the ground level toward the Yarra River and just next to Queensbridge Square.




There are plenty of secure parking lots around, but we recommend the Wilson’s Secure Car Park on Riverside Quay which is conveniently located directly behind us at No. 1 South Bank Blvd.




Left Bank Melbourne is easy walking distance from both Flinders Street and Southern Cross Train Stations as well as several tram lines. 1.
