YARRA RIVER, ABBOTSFORD

Abbotsford is an inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2 km east from Melbourne's Central Business District. Its Local Government Area is the City of Yarra. At the 2011 Census, Abbotsford had a population of 4,907. Abbotsford is bounded by Collingwood, Richmond and Clifton Hill and separated from Kew by the meandering Yarra River. Formerly part of the City of Collingwood, it is now part of the City of Yarra.

The Yarra River and adjoining parklands provide an opportunity for residents to wander through pockets of natural bushland and to relax in all sorts fo leisure activity. Not sure if fishing in the river is permitted!

  5. It looks like this place is not in the middle of the city. So nice to see people come and relax with nature.
