Melbourne City River Trails

USD 1203.01

The Yarra River precinct is a wonderful place for tailor made, short interesting walks covering the arts, maritime history and fabulous gardens.
This precinct is the hub of Melbourne's artistic and cultural scene, with generous examples of public art and exciting architecture.
This precinct includes the significant green spaces of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Birrarung Marr as well as smaller parks, gardens, reserves and Southbank.
