Built in 1886 - 1888, and in the best Melbourne tradition, the bridge is built on solid bluestone bulwarks - none of your flimsy sandstone - with plenty of cast iron.
The circular building is Hamer hall, part of the Melbourne Arts Complex where you can enjoy a variety of performances such as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, comedy and gala film events. The brown(ish) building is the Herald Sun and the blue one is the Eureka Tower.
