Thousands of people cross this pretty bridge everyday without stopping and enjoying the views. Great spot to look down river in both directions. Has nice ornaments as well

Great looking bridge in the heart of the city. Good link between the banks of the Yarra with many local bars and restaurants in easy reach from here. Always busy with locals, commuters and visitors. Great place to take some city scape photos or shots...More
