The Southbank promenade along the Yarra River is one of Melbourne's most popular dining precincts, with its riverside setting and fantastic views of the city skyline. The promenade has a broad range of cafes and restaurants, all the way from the Southgate complex to the Crown Casino, many with outdoor terraces and balconies where you can dine alfresco and watch street performers and passing pedestrians while taking in the stunning views of the cityscape as it lights up at night.
The Southgate complex and Crown Casino are widely known for their stylish boutiques and eclectic galleries. Shop for luxury lingerie, seductive perfumes and fabulous designer pieces from Versace, Burberry, La Perla, Mont Blanc and Prada.
Head up to St Kilda Road on the south bank of the Yarra River and explore Melbourne's vibrant arts precinct, incorporating the Australian Ballet, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The National Gallery of Victoria, the Victorian Arts Centre, Playbox Theatre and The Malthouse. On Sundays, the Arts Centre Market spreads out along the eastern end of the riverbank with a colourful range of local arts and crafts.
For a different perspective, jump onboard a scenic cruise, water taxi or gondola outside the Southgate complex and float along the Yarra River.
Southbank is easily accessible by foot, car, tram or train.
