Owner description: Lovely riverside walk along the Yarra in Melbourne with lots of nice cafes restaurants and shopping areas. Very up and coming.

A very nice upscale river walk with all types of restaurants lining the one side of the river. All are open air and three levels to explore. We had a nice dinner and enjoyed drinks at another later in the evening. A nice nighttime view of downtown Melbourne.

Great for a stroll along the Yarra River, particularly on a sunny day. Lots of restaurants, bars, shops and hotels. Parking except in a paid car park is difficult. Crown Casino complex a good 10-15 minute walk away. Fantastic little handicraft market on a Sunday with all locally made goods. Must see spot for tourists. Stay in a Southbank hotel and walk to everything.

weather you want to stroll along the yarra, or drop in for a bit to eat southgate is a reasonable place to handle this. you can also get a boat to various locations right out the front. we took a very informative water taxi to docklands. it took about 30 minutes and was great.

Nice to shop around this small shopping mall, got some cute shops selling gifts and home decor. Quite a few nice restaurants/ cafes. Nice to stroll along the riverbank with award winning ice cream.

Firstly if you just want cheap entertainment go and see the buskers. They are keen to receive a small donation for their acts but it is worthwhile. The restaurants range from expensive to cheap so go for it. Upstairs there are quite a few shops mostly expensive but worth a look.
