“Plenty to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We take our visitors for a walk along the river. Lovee watching the rowing. There are always people having a picnic or running along the path. Great for people watching

“Scenic Spot to Stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

The Yarra really is a beautiful river. We walked over to the south side of the river and walked along. There was lots of shopping and many cafes to enjoy. When we made it to the Crown Casino we went inside to have a look around. It's a beautiful spot in Melbourne.

“It's a river”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Reminds me of the Chicago river. It flows through the middle of the CBD. It looks filthy with brown water. They have boat tours down the river but nothing really to see.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Some people like comparing Sydney with Melbourne. Although there are no iconic buildings like The Opera House and Harbour Bridge, views around Yarra River are as beautiful as Sydney Harbour in the day and night. A stroll around the river is highly recommended.

“Yarra RIver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Lovely to walk around, so lively at night. Choice of restaurants & live entertainment
The train station is right there. So easy to access from the inner cities. From there you can take the "free" visitors tram. Yes, Free.. you can go around and around when you get tired of walking.
In general, loved this area.
