With breathtaking, vertiginous views across Melbourne city and Eureka Tower - formerly the city’s tallest building - Australia 108’s 161 premium Cloud Residences offer some of the most awe-inspiring vantages in the nation.

Designed by the award winning teams at Fender Katsalidis (architect) and Carr (interiors), these truly unique homes in the sky are perched atop the building’s iconic gold Starburst feature positioned 210m above ground and top out on the 100th floor at a breathtaking319m. On level 97, there is a collection of four limited edition Nova sub-penthouses; the three bedroom abodes feature floor plans of up to 202sqm and boasting price tags between $4,746,000 and $5,558,000. Beneath the Starburst are 944 Sky Rise Residences, offering residents high-end style and design on a backdrop of panoramic views.


The apartments’ interiors are inspired by Carr’s most exclusive residential homes - by utilising a subtle material palette of recon stone, natural stone and porcelain the designers have created an opulent and calming built space. David Ng, CEO of developer World Class Global, comments that the highest residences of Australia 108 offer views that are unmatched anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere.

“In a market where it may seem there has been no ceiling on luxury real estate, Australia 108 raises the bar again.”

He continues, “Australia 108’s highest Cloud Residence apartments form a bridge between the earth and sky. When the clouds roll in, these homes enter what feels like another realm. A sky that seems grey at street level is revealed as a misty dreamland for our residents. It is a truly breathtaking spectacle.”


Another enticing aspect of Australia 108 is the development’s exclusive amenities. Marked by the Starburst design feature on the facade, residents can relax at the Southern Hemisphere’s highest infinity pools, enjoy a nice meal at the dining rooms. work out at the gymnasiums, enjoy movies at the theatres and play a round of golf in the golf simulator room - just steps away from home. Additionally, residents of the Cloud Residences and Nova sub-penthouses can access a private level of amenities at the double-storey Star Club within the Starburst. This includes their own private infinity pool, an exclusive gymnasium, dining rooms, cinema, lounges and more.

Nicky Drobis, director at Fender Katsalidis, the architecture firm behind Australia 108, said the Star Club was designed to create a genuine sense of community at the megatower, which comprises 1,105 apartments.

“A key objective for us when designing the Starburst was to create a civic-style environment that would help foster an authentic sense of connection among residents, like that of a town hall. It is humbling to see this being realised and residents embracing it,” said Ms Drobis.

“The Commonwealth Star on the Australian flag inspired our design for the Starburst and has supported our vision to create a truly innovative and iconic landmark for Melbourne.”

Perhaps the most impressive of all amenity at the 2,800sqm Star Club are the two twin infinity edge pools that cantilever over the streets 212m below, set against floor-to-ceiling glass within a double-height space.
