MELBOURNE has become renowned as the world's most liveable city, but it's also one of the leading destinations for learning.
Boasting world-class research and education facilities, the city is an attractive destination for international students.
Home to thriving retail, dining and arts precincts, this safe, vibrant and well-planned city offers plenty of appeal off campus as well.
International investors are also sitting up and taking notice, making a big splash in the Victorian property market.
Cosmopolitan and culturally diverse, Melbourne is one of Australia's fastest-growing cities, with population rates expected to continue an upward trend. This is underscored by the high number of higher education students (both domestic and international) that reside in the city.
The inner-city Southbank precinct offers easy access to world-class centres for education, teaching and research excellence, and is set to undergo a dramatic transformation.
This visionary project is expected to cement Southbank as a premier arts, cultural and education hub, complemented by dynamic residential developments.
OSK Property's Melbourne Square will form one of the largest mixed-use precincts planned for this area and offers a superior investment opportunity.
Rising above an expansive parkland setting, this landmark development will deliver an array of premium apartments, exceptional private amenity and lush rooftop gardens.
Some of Australia's top education providers are located within close proximity to Southbank, including the University of Melbourne, RMIT and Victoria University, the latter which is ranked among the top 2% of universities in the world.
Plans for the area also include expansive public green space, a fully lined supermarket, childcare facility, as well as a wide choice of food and retail outlets.
Buoyed by strong population growth and low unemployment rates, Australia's economic stability is another key drawcard for foreign investors. The current exchange rate also makes the country an appealing investment proposition.
Melbourne's property market has been a consistently high performer in recent years, driven by strong demand and high rental yields. With such outstanding credentials, the city continues to attract foreign interest from developers and investors.
This all adds up to make Melbourne a fantastic destination to invest, live and learn.
