WEBB BRIDGE IN SOUTH WHARF/DOCKLANDS

Webb Bridge or "Web" Bridge? You'll find both names applied to the walkway/cycleway across the Yarra River from the southside housing developments to the northside entertainment, shopping and dining venues at the Melbourne Docklands.  It's an interesting, unique-looking bridge which is part of a Melbourne public art project. Webb Bridge was actually designed to represent a Koori (Australian Aborigine) eel trap. The bridge reuses the remaining sections of the disused Webb Rail Bridge.  But because the framework of the bridge does look like a mesh or web, the name Web Bridge may become the more common appellation.  Crossing Webb Bridge from the Yarra River southside area known as Yarra's Edge brings you to Docklands Park on the north side and thence to Victoria Harbour Promenade, Harbour Esplanade with Etihad Stadium on the right, and on to NewQuay and Waterfront City on the north side of Victoria Harbour.

  9. Wow! Amazing photos….. Yes the first one is stunning, but the second one is almost surrealistic and like a painting….. I love the dark figure about to walk into the maws of the bridge!
