The recent development of the picturesque Southbank area has reminded Melburnians of the pleasures associated with the Yarra River and the city's waterways.
Now with the massive redevelopment of the Docklands precinct, which for years sat on the western edge of the inner city as a wasteland of old docks, piers and disused sheds, is now being turned into a thriving residential, shopping, entertainment and cafe precinct.
Now visitors can discover the new-found delights that Melbourne's waterways offer.
Nestled between Docklands and Melbourne city is the home ground of AFL
football. This is Australia's first multi-purpose stadium with a roof that can be closed. Various
tours of the stadium are conducted Monday to Friday.
