I believe Docklands is one of the most underrated area of the city. It is maybe true that it does not have that typical Australian feeling. It is mostly based on buildings and a small number of luxurious villas. As a result the City of Melbourne and Docklands team up quite frequently to organise fantastic events, as it was the case for the Australia Day, with many concerts and a very long and beautiful fire works.
