Why Roompik is great for Melbourne?

Using Roompik to view flatshares and potential flatmates will save you time by showing you the background and interests of each housmate so that you can judge whether you would be suited to live together before doing taking the time for property viewings. Why spend an hour of your time viewing a flat when you could have already ruled it out because you got the information you really needed on Roompik?

Where are the best places for young professionals in Melbourne?

Melbourne much to the ire of Sydney consistently gets voted as the best place to live and flatshare in the world. As you'd expect you're not short of options when it comes to live. We'd recommend that you start looking at suburbs such as South Yarra, Richmond, Carlton, Fitzroy, Coburg, Williamstown, Yarraville, Docklands and of course the world famous St Kilda.

Why is Melbourne a great place to live?

Sydney always wins when it comes to beaches but apart from this Melbourne wins in all other areas. Melbourne is the best sporting city in the world hosting events such as the Australian Open, the Melbourne Cup, the Austalian Grand Prix, Test match cricket, top class Australian Rules and NRL teams. The list goes on. Melbourne also benefits from cheaper property prices and a top class arts scene. Our view is Sydney got lazy because the beaches are so good and naturally the culture revolves around them. Melbournites took this weakness and went about building a city that has worldclass sports, arts and education institutions. Oh and a top class beach still isn't too far if you have access to a car.
