Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Birrarung Marr Footbridge


The Birrarung Marr Footbridge was completed in 2000 and joins the MCG with Birrarung Marr. Crossing the Jolimont railyards and Batman Avenue, it is a bridge of strong perspectives, and is eye-catching with its tall, linear spears and simplicity. Stretching 120 metres in length, you get great views of Melbourne city and see far over the Yarra to the Eureka Tower.

This is superb! I like the materials. I like the lines. I like the length.

I like that area a lot but have never walked across this. I have tickets for the tennis in January already and shall put walking across this on my agenda.

One of my favourite bridges. Good views and surrounding areas are wonderful.

The tennis is great. I was fortunate enough to watch Pat Rafter and Andre Agassi - pure magic. The "Mexican Waves" were very popular.
