Southbank is absolutely brilliant. So many restaurants and bars to choose from, spoilt for choice. Enjoyed a few good nights here, and the night time views of the city are brilliant

We loved walking along the river and stopping at the bars and restaurants along the route. Very casual and stress free. Lots of atmosphere in the evenings.

Southbank is up there with exciting promenades all around the world. There's plenty to do and see with excellent restaurants, a world class casino and a resurgent Yarra River.

Great paths through a fascinating area bordering the Yarra River. When we were there we were able to watch an international water-skiing competition on the river.
