Stay Inspired in Melbourne's north at The Larwill Studio on Flemington Road, Parkville. Just a hop away from the CBD, Melbourne Zoo, Queen Victoria Markets, Flemington Race Track, Melbourne University and a ...More myriad of unique cafes and boutiques it's an enviable location. Dedicated to the very lovable Australian artist, David Larwill, the boutique hotel draws inspiration from his Studio. With bright, playful Larwill works complementing the contemporary design and incredible views of green parklands and the city, The Larwill Studio is the perfect place for contemplation, creation and inspired thinking. As part of the new Commercial precinct at the Royal Children's Hospital on Flemington Road, Parkville, The Larwill Studio's location is perfect for discovering the north of Melbourne and the CBD.
