Perfectly positioned in one of Melbourne’s finest suburbs, the Benson offers you a seamless transition to retirement. Life here will embody all you’ve come to know and love about Toorak, stately residences, leafy outlooks, refined dining, unrivalled entertaining and cultural activities.

Located adjacent to St Peters’ inspiring Gothic Revival sandstone church and named after Father Benson, the South Yarra parish priest who purchased the site in 1904, the rich heritage of the site remains strongly linked to the surrounding area.


From fashionable boutiques to purveyors of fine food, everything you desire is close by in both Toorak and Hawksburn villages and neighbouring South Yarra and Armadale.

The Benson is close to some of Melbourne’s sought after retailers such as Husk, Max Mara and Henry Bucks as well as iconic fashion destinations Chapel Street and Toorak Road. Gourmet food is plentiful with Simon Johnson Grocers, Peter G Bouchier Butchers and Stocked Food Store, representative of excellent fresh fare at your fingertips.


The finest wine and dining options surround you at The Benson. Enjoy the well-established, reliable havens of Café Latte, Quaff and France Soir: favourite and familiar meeting spots.

Savour classic Italian at Café e Cuccina or relax with lunch at the Botanical in South Yarra then pick up an indulgent dessert at Burch and Purchese or Adriano Zumbo.


The Benson is well connected to public transport, with trams located at your doorstep providing ease of passage to South Yarra Station, the CBD and Melbourne’s great entertainment, sporting and cultural precincts.

Keep up with the latest exhibitions at NGV or the current musical theatre production at the Regent. Closer to home, visit Palace Como for art house movies or relax with a champagne in Gold Class at the Jam Factory cinemas.
