Although Melbourne is situated on the shores of one of the largest bays on the Australian coast, the city’s main water feature is the Yarra River. That’s because the city grew from the banks of the Yarra and even today the focus for the city is still very much on a one-kilometre section of the river..
The Yarra River precinct is a wonderful place for tailor made, short interesting walks covering the arts, maritime history and fabulous gardens.
This precinct is the hub of Melbourne’s artistic and cultural scene, with generous examples of public art and exciting architecture.
This precinct includes the significant green spaces of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Birrarung Marr as well as smaller parks, gardens, reserves and Southbank.
