JANE’S WALKS: BRIDGES AND BANKS OF THE YARRA RIVER
Spencer Street Bridge
18 Spencer St, Melbourne VIC 3004, Australia
Criss cross the Yarra River from Spencer St to Webb Bridge—a walk dense with river front history and change. Crossing the Yarra River has been an enduring challenge and a practical necessity in an ever growing city. Each bridge pushed shipping further downstream leaving river front land available for renewal. This process is ongoing and very much alive. The river banks are packed with maritime and industrial history as well as architectural interest.
Please note: Walk will proceed in rain or shine!
