Eureka Tower Melbourne

All great cities in the world have a great icon. And that icon is a point of recognition for it. And that’s what Eureka Tower is for Melbourne. It is a glistening, urban skyscraper in the modern, cosmopolitan city of Melbourne. It was named after the Eureka Stockade, which was a rebellion during the Victorian gold rush in 1854.

The Eureka Tower is more than just a tall building, it is a popular tourist spot. The tower stands tall at 297 meters (975 ft.). The building is gold plated and is next to the Yarra River, in the center of the Southbank precinct. The top 10 floors have 24 carat (99.9%) gold plated glass windows. There is a constant system of pumps moving water between the two 300,000 liter tanks so it can beat the wind-induced oscillations.

Federation Square
In the lead up to the Centenary of Federation in 2001, the development of Federation Square offered a unique opportunity – the chance to celebrate the ideas of ‘identity’ and ‘place’ through a much needed civic and cultural space. Over the last two hundred years the site had been home to the city morgue, a fish market, corporate offices and rail yards. While planners had long dreamed of linking the CBD to the Yarra River, the divide created by the railway yards had consistently thwarted further development. Given its bold architectural form and large aspiration, the project had it share of changes to the brief, controversy over the design and costs, heated debate, and skepticism. Since opening on 26 October 2002 however, Federation Square has been embraced by locals and visitors alike, with an average of more than 10 million visits each year. Fed Square is made up of a series of interlocking and cascading spaces. Buildings open at all angles in the city, creating unexpected connections and vistas. In response to the brief, the design was heavily influenced by the idea of ‘Federation’, of bringing disparate parts together to form a coherent whole.

Melbourne Cricket ground
The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is located a short distance from Melbourne's city center in the Melbourne Sports Precinct at Yarra Park, which also includes the Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, and AAMI Park. With a total capacity of 100,000 people, the Melbourne Cricket Ground is the largest stadium in Australia, the tenth-largest stadium in the world, and the world's largest stadium for playing cricket. The Melbourne Cricket Ground has been the scene of many great sporting events and 'firsts' in Australian sporting history since being built in 1853, just 19 years after the founding of the City of Melbourne itself. It is the home of the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC), the oldest sporting club in Australia. In 1877 the first game of Test cricket in history was played between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. In 1971, the ground hosted the first One Day International cricket match. The Boxing Day Test match on Boxing Day (26 December) each year attracts huge crowds. In winter, it serves as the home of Australian Rules football (AFL). The stadium fills to capacity for the AFL Grand Final in late September.

By the banks of the river Yarra is this classy decked up pedestrian called the Southbank Melbourne. A fall in the Australian economy during the early 90’s gave room to development and refurbishing of the town. The initial idea of Southbank refurbishing came into place to enhance tourism and to setup a recreational spot amidst the city.

The great view and fine location by the river made it one of the desired areas in town. Housing some of the important businesses, skyscrapers and touristy spots such as the National gallery, Eureka and so on it is now one of the prominent places in Melbourne.

The dramatic backdrop of the skyscrapers and posh building by the banks of the river fascinate tourists. The busy streets, the flashy lights, rushing pedestrians and the fresh breeze by the riverside in the urban neighbourhood resembles the set of a hollywood movie.  

If you are a tourist visiting Melbourne, you might need to book a day in your itenary for the Southbank tour. Public attractions such as Crown casino, Melbourne convention & exhibition centre, Victorian art centre, National Gallery of Victoria, James Bond store, river cruises and so on are housed in the same vicinity. If you aren’t in the mood to go touristy Southbank also  offers a variety of other shopping, food and art experiences to enjoy.
Royal Botanical Gardens Melbourne

Before the Royal Botanical Gardens Melbourne was established by Lieutenant General Charles La Trobe in 1846, the area in which the garden now exists was a mundane stretch of swampland. The area on the South Bank of the Yarra River was filled with craggy rocks, outcrops, marshland and weeds.

The first director of the garden- Ferdinand von Mueller- was appointed in 1857. He was also one of the most renowned botanists of the 19th century and was responsible for bringing exotic plants to the Botanical Gardens from all parts of the world.

Mueller was succeeded by the second, and most remarkable director of the Botanical Gardens- Willian Guilfoyle- who was responsible for changing the look and structure of the whole area, to turn it into the natural spectacle that it is today.

He took the National Herbarium, established by Mueller, and the several plants that he brough, and turned the garden into a sprawling mass of winding paths, lakes, pleasant gardens and walkways. Guilfoyle’s efforts to renovate the garden into a modern tourist attraction and natural retreat were aided by the pleasant and mild weather conditions prevalent in Melbourne.

The weather allowed both tropical and temperate plants to flourish, which has led to more than 12,000 plant species thriving in this facility. It has also created a stable, natural ecosystem for local birds and animals to build their homes in, while the people who visit can take advantage of the natural beauty of the trees, as well as interact with indigenous animals, first hand.

An expansion effort was undertaken in 1960 when a piece of land adjacent to the Melbourne Botanical Gardens was purchased. This led to the establishment of the Cranbourne Gardens in 1970, which opened to the public in 1985.

The “Royal” prefix was added to the name of the garden in 1958 by Queen Elizabeth II. Today, both the Melbourne Garden and the Cranbourne Garden constitute the Royal Botanical Gardens Melbourne.

Docklands Melbourne is a suburb located in the inner-western side of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is about 2 km (1.2 miles) from Melbourne's CBD or Central Business District. Taking into account all the land and water that makes up Docklands, the entire area adds up to around 200 hectares.

It is a waterfront area bounded to the west by CityLink, on the east by the Wurundjeri Way and the Charles Grimes Bridge while Lorimer Street across the Yarra river lines up its south.
The west of Melbourne initially used to be a forest swamp and by the 1880s parts of it began to be utilized massively as an address for a dock accompanied by a vast network of wharfs, railways and small industries.

Later following the introduction of containerisation of shipping traffic the dock started losing its importance and was virtually abandoned in the 1990s. An underground rave dance scene, which generally involves parties surrounding performances by DJs, also started to gain popularity in Docklands by the 1990s.

Today's Docklands is the shelter of Melbourne’s many tourist attractions including the striking Melbourne Star Observation wheel and the Docklands football Stadium. Other recommended options are the beautiful sunset, the urban arts and the cafes and restaurants facing the Yarra.

Half Moon Bay,Black Rock
This little hiding hole is a perfect spot when you're in a group looking to head to the beach where not many people are around. Normally, you will be able to find a quiet spot to enjoy with your friends and hang out, but recently more and more people have discovered this area of the beach where it may be a little more crowded. Either way, it has the sandiness you want, plus a few rock pools and also a beautiful looking cliff's edge to admire also. Maybe Half Moon Bay isn't as private as it used to be but it's still one of my favorite beach positions to hang out at. Looking for a nice beach within Melbourne is a little difficult, to say the least. Half Moon Bay, on the other hand, is a gorgeous little spot and a real surprise in comparison to other Melbourne beaches. Great for swimming, tanning, reading and picnicking this is the perfect spot for when you don't want to leave the city in search of some sand, sea and sunshine. Half Moon Bay had been setting for yachting since the 1890s, and a branch of the Brighton Yacht Club formed the Black Rock Yacht Club in 1919.
