Suburb in Focus – South Yarra

If you’re a Melbournite searching for convenience, then South Yarra is the suburb for you. Everything is at your finger-tips – gyms, trendy restaurants, bars, spas, retail stores, cinemas and, of course, great public transport and access to the CBD. There are plenty of attractive apartments and green spaces for those times you need an escape – the Botanical Gardens are nearby and you have easy access to the beach and the Yarra River. Naturally, living so close the city has its drawbacks – there’s high demand for apartments and plenty of people willing to pay high rentals. There’s always a buzz of traffic, both car and foot traffic. Parking can be tricky and the streets are noisy.  Our emergency locksmith, South Yarra, often gets called out to businesses and residents in the area. Today, we take a look at the latest crime statistics for the area.
