City on the edge of the Yarra

Melbourne is a night-time city. We have the usual four seasons, often more than once a day. Gardens and restaurants are our best-known assets (Victoria likes to think of itself as the Garden State). In fine weather the gardens draw us into the open air, and when the days turn inclement, or night time falls, we flock to restaurants and bistros and coffee shops.

In recent years a great deal of money has been expended to transform the southern banks of the Yarra River. An area of the suburb South Melbourne lying close to the river has been renamed Southbank. It features the Victorian Arts Centre, Southgate, the casino complex and the Melbourne Convention Centre.
