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.

Bridge Over Untroubled Waters


The Afton Street Pedestrian Bridge was built in 1990 and crosses over the Maribyrnong River linking Afton Street and The Boulevard with Chifley Drive.

Winding its way along the river, The Boulevard is a popular walk with locals and those keen on exercise. The Chifley Drive walk is a 4.2 km loop starting at Leopold Street near the Anglers Tavern - follow the path along the river and Chifley Drive past the Coulson Gardens to Afton St footbridge. Cross the bridge onto the North side of the river, follow the track along Riverside Park past Essendon Rowing Club to Maribyrnong Road, finishing back at the Anglers Tavern. After this delightful walk, relax in the grounds of the Anglers with a long cool drink.

Thanka J Bar - looking through my files, I took 10 shots of the bridge.

Hello Paulo,
Thank you, I think my city is nice too.:-)
I've been to Fremantle and loved it - it's laid back and has a good "Cappuccino Strip".
Thanks too for following my blog,
Cheers,
