Many overseas readers of Festivale visit for the photographs, so here are some of the photographs to be found on our site featuring Melbourne's Yarra River in Victoria, Australia.

Large vessels cannot travel far down the Melbourne River. The Westgate bridge is the last bridge that permits tall ships. Pleasure crafts of many kinds make their way under the low bridges in the inner city area. They transport site-seers on trips of various lengths.

Yarra River from Alexandra Gardens, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

From Alexandra Gardens across the Yarra River towards Batman Avenue. Flinders St station is to the left across the river.

Best known of the Melbourne river traffic are the sculling teams, and during the Moomba festival, the water skiers' speedboats. This quiet stretch with its historic club houses is filled with onlookers when the water events are run.
