Docklands is an inner city suburb i.  Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is bounded by Spencer Street, Wurundjeri Way and Charles Grimes Bridge to the east, CityLink to the west and Lorimer Street across the Yarra to the south and is a primarily waterfront area centred around the banks of the Yarra River.

Contemporary Docklands is the product of an ongoing urban renewal project to extend the area of the CBD (excluding Southbank and St Kilda Road) by over a third when completed around 2015. It is now home to several of Melbourne's modern landmarks including Etihad Stadium, Southern Cross Station and The Southern Star.

The name "Docklands" is contrived from the word "dock" (in reference to the area's maritime history) and "land", with the name directly inspired by the name of the contemporary development in England, London Docklands. (Source: Wiki)
