CHRISTMASSY YARRA FOOTBRIDGE

The Yarra Footbridge is a relatively recent addition to the Yarra River crossings in Melbourne. The bridge stands between Princes Bridge and Sandridge Bridge (a former railway bridge, now another pedestrian bridge). It is the closest footbridge to Federation Square and the Melbourne tourist information office.

The Yarra Footbridge links Flinders Street and station with the Yarra Promenade on the Southbank. It is very busy at the rush hour as it is one of the main pedestrian links to the railway station from the Southbank. For tourists and those visiting Melbourne, the Yarra Footbridge offers great views of the Melbourne skyline and easy access to the restaurants and cafes that line the Southbank.

The Christmas decorations are up on the bridge and the splashes of red cheer up the dull grey, rainy day we had yesterday! The padlocks secured on the bridge is a worldwide pop cultural phenomenon and you can read more about it here.
