SOUTHGATE FOOTBRIDGE, EARLY MORNING

Southgate is an entertainment area on the riverside, with lots of restaurants and shops, the National Gallery, State Theatre and Concert Halls. Markets are held in this area on most weekends and there si always something to see and do here. Further to the West, there is bustling business precinct and even further along the West is ht eCrown Casino Complex.

The Southgate Footbridge was built in 1989 over the Yarra River in Melbourne, and provides the main pedestrian link for thousands of workers and tourists between Flinders Street Station and the Southgate business and entertainment precinct. This pedestrian bridge over the Yarra is a focal point from both sides of the river and its graceful curves are much photographed. The Ponyfish Island café and bar just under the bridge is in a good location to have a coffee or a light meal, if a trifle damp!
