Hawthorn East Hotel & Accommodation

Hawthorn East, home of Wesfarmers' Coles' headquarters, is 9 km east of Melbourne CBD. It's got a couple of excellent open spaces for picnicking (Fritsch Holzer and Anderson Parks) and is fantastically connected to the city. The Auburn station is nearby, and three tram routes are handy. The 70 goes to Docklands, with stops at places like the MCG, Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Exhibition Centre and Southern Star Observation Wheel on the way. Deals on rooms in east Hawthorn here.
