Southbank Precinct

Galleries, Shops and Cafes

This footbridge connects the Southbank Precinct to the Melbourne Central District. Southgate workers and tourists pass under the tracks of the Flinders Street Station. It is a pleasant way to walk from the city proper to the Casino across the river.

On sunny days, especially the riverfront area comes to life and the pleasure craft scuttle back and forth along the Yarra River.
