Popular Suburbs in Melbourne

Naturally, as with traditional rentals, location and suburb are sizeable factors when it comes to the potential return of your Airbnb hosting. Speak with OptiNest today to get a free estimate on what we believe your potential Airbnb rental income to be based on a variety of factors.

To get you started, take a look at some of the most popular suburbs for Airbnb rentals in Melbourne:


This buzzing inner-city hub is perfectly located for those searching for great energy and a strong, positive vibe. Quick access to trams and trains ensures that any renters are going to be a mere stone’s throw from the city centre. It’s close enough to the CBD to be appealing, but far enough away to have a more laid back feel.


Richmond, an inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, 3 km (1.86 miles) east of Melbourne's CBD, is the perfect blend of suburban comforts and city excitement. It is a step away from some of Melbourne’s favourite bars, arenas and entertainment, making it highly appealing to visitors. Also, Richmond Train Station is a major hub and has great links all over Melbourne.


Airbnb management in Chadstone is highly sought after, and it’s easy to see why. As home to the largest shopping centre in the country, boasting cinemas, dining, and an unforgettable shopping experience, few people travel to Australia without a plan to visit this iconic landmark of Melbourne’s shopping landscape.


For those of a more stylish, creative, bohemian persuasion, there are not many areas better than Collingwood. Popular with art and music types, occupancy rates are high here all year round, and this makes it the ideal choice for short-stay rental hosts.

It depends on suburbs, property types and seasonality. A short answer according to a research in 2021 by AirDNA, it is averagely 72%. Airbnb averaged $151 per night throughout the Melbourne area, with an occupancy rate of 72%.

Though best known for its coffee, food and cultural scene, Melbourne also has its fair share of charming beaches. When it comes to Melbourne beaches, most people think of St. Kilda. It's true, St. Kilda beach screams seaside vibes and long summer days on the ocean. But Melbourne isn't a one beach city. For those of you who love spending your holidays on the beach, Melbourne doesn't disappoint. Below are some of the most popular and famous suburbs for beaches:

  • St Kilda
  • Brighton
  • South Melbourne
  • Williamstown
  • Sandringham
  • Torquay (Great Ocean Road)
  • Anglesea (Great Ocean Road)
  • Sorrento Back Beach (Mornington Penisula)

Immigrants from all over the world, particularly China and the Americas, helped influence Melbourne's culture during the 1850s Victorian gold rush and the decades that followed. Melbourne has given rise to a multitude of distinct cultural qualities and institutions over time, and it is now one of the world's most multicultural cities. It's a melting pot of creativity expressed in its arts, design, fashion, and events, and it's a city that inspires. Victoria celebrates a strong artistic culture that is ready to be explored, from theatre shows and live music to comedy clubs and fashion shows.

Yes, Airbnb is legal in Melbourne. As long as you have the rights to lease your space. Any accommodation advertised must not violate the lease or rental agreements and must comply with all applicable zoning laws - according to Airbnb terms and conditions.

So as long as you own the house/apartment or have permission from the property owner and align with the zoning restrictions, you are free to list your Airbnb properties to earn short rental income.

Whilst some may be under the assumption that Airbnb hosting is only for central areas, the reality is that people require short-stay rental options for a wide array of reasons. From business to visiting family members to simply wanting a place out of the way to get some much-needed rest & relaxation, each Airbnb guest will have their own reason for staying. So, as long as your area is nice, has ways to get around, or simply offers some lovely views, it will be more than suited to the short-stay rental market.

When we say that our success hinges on your success, we mean it. Aside from a one-off listing fee, the price of which will depend on the readiness of your property, our only charge is a 15% ongoing fee plus GST. The listing fee includes all the work that needs to be done to get your property ready for listing, including cleaning, linens, professional photography and more. No hidden fees, just great service at a reasonable price.

As is to be expected, your returns aren’t going to triple overnight. It is a gradual process, generally providing a 30%-60% rental boost over time. Growing momentum takes time, and as you get more positive reviews, your property overall will gain more of a boost.

No, with no lock-in contracts, you can remove your listing at any point. With that said, the process of growing your listing is gradual and can take time to gather momentum. Therefore, we recommend keeping your listing up for at least 2-3 months before making any decisions.
