Docklands is rather newly developed compared to the CBD. So, if you want to see more contemporary urban design or waterfront design, Docklands would be a good place to visit. In Docklands, some of the main attractions are the Custom Building, where the building facade has been designed with geometrical patterns that create an optical illusion; and several other buildings with eye-catching facades. Walking along the waterfront is relaxing, and you can walk to or from Dockland's Harbour Town - a street mall with retail outlets such as Esprit, Cotton On, Rebel Sports and some eateries.
Docklands is located on the east side of Melbourne CBD.
