This was our first visit to Melbourne and to be honest I did not even know the name of the river that runs through the city. The Yarra river is really quite impressive and there is a lot to look at when you walk along...More

Suggest you enjoy Melbourne's architecture from a cruise along the Yarra River going from Melbourne to Williamstown. A great way to also pass by the large port of Melbourne. Pick up the cruise along the Southbank of the Yarra River.

The cafes along the river, the tourists thronging the sidewalks, everyone taking pictures - this is a very nice part of Melbourne to visit

The Yarra river within Melbourne has some very active areas like Southbank, full of life and with plenty of restaurants and bars. A bit upstream it gets quieter and more peaceful, also a bit more nature. So whatever you prefer - you can choose and...More

Busy promenade loads of eating places including top end ones, fairly expensive area by U.K. prices. Ate in Chinese in crown complex it was very average for upmarket prices.

Nice area for a relaxing walk or to get some exercise running or biking. The trail goes for miles from the end of the river well up beyond the city. Park areas and restaurants along much of the Yarra make is very pleasant.

This is not the best place to view the Yarra River. It is just a concrete channel here, but further upstream it can be wild and full of birdlife in bushland. Head for Dight's Falls or around Fairfield to see it as it once was.

I always make it a point to visit the Yarra River area on my visits to Melbourne. The 150-mile-long river cuts a swath through the city, presenting great photo ops, Each time I aim my camera, I think about how Melbourne would never have been...More
