Yarra River, Melbourne

(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
By day, you can enjoy walking, jogging, or cycling up one side of Yarra River, through the parks and paved paths of Southbank Promenade. These paths lead visitors toward an impressive array of sports arenas, including the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver Centre, and the former Olympic stadium. On the Central Business District side of the river, you can stop at a bar or cafe before heading into the center of the city. At night, the cityscape visible from the riverside is bright and vibrant, and the views up and down the river from the higher floors of buildings, such as the harbor-side Hilton, are particularly notable. Put Yarra River into our Melbourne vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Melbourne.

  • Great place to walk in the afternoon, enjoy the bars and views of the river. It can get a bit crowded. 
  • 歐美許多大城因河水增色 紐澳也是如此 墨爾本有了雅拉河 就成為一座美麗可親近的所在 因為旅棧位於南岸 我們 的散步方式是先走南岸公園到接近歌劇院的亞伯特王子橋頭 再回頭 隨著上班上學的人流過木欄橋 到弗林德斯火車站所在的北岸 看到隔壁一坐滿是鋼構裝置藝術的鐵橋 又上橋走回南岸 黃昏則往皇冠飯店的方向走去 南岸在這區塊有不少色彩斑斕的裝置藝術 
  • Its hard to keep away from the Yarra River when visiting Melbourne as it runs right through the heart of the city and many of the main attractions are right on the rivers edge. The river itself is not...  more »
