Postcoder introduces the sunny bayside suburb of Port Melbourne, located 5km south-west of Melbourne’s CBD. The development of Port Melbourne dates back to the 1840s with steady residential and industrial expansion ever since. Famous for its spectacular foreshore, its retail strip along Bay Street and Station Pier where the Spirit of Tasmania docks, it is no surprise Port Melbourne’s population continues to expand. With this growth comes marvellous cafes, fitness hotspots, shops and beauty salons.
