The Ocean is a 20 minute drive from the City Centre. In the CBD (city centre) there are lots of  hostels, nightclubs, restaurants and even a casinò. There is also an area completely dedicated to students. There is a cosy park near the State Library where students can meet, organise events, or enjoy a movie on the massive screen beside the theatre.
