The Yarra. The river that runs through the City of Melbourne. Many cities are built around rivers and for Melbourne, the Yarra created access to the bay for trade with the rest of the world. The word ‘Yarra’ is actually an aboriginal term and means ‘ever flowing’. The river runs 242 kilometres from the Yarra Ranges, through Warrandyte and all the way through the city until it spills into the bay under the Westgate Bridge at Spotswood. Most people know it as the brown coloured water that passes through Southgate but it is so much more. Whilst you probably wouldn’t swim in the built up areas, further upstream there are some lovely water holes where locals take the plunge. It is also home to many a platypus. In the city it has become more popular in recent times for watercraft of all types including kayaks, which we have done at twilight and highly recommend. This shot shows the pedestrian bridge that crosses from Flinders Street Station to South gate. [The name and white border will appear as part of the final print, however the website watermark will not appear.]
