Of all the recent riverfront developments, this is one of the best versions. Mainly high end shops and restaurants but also apartments and some ordinary places to create a mix. Spans both sides of Yara River.

Nothing specific to do or see as the promenade walk is more about just ambling along, people watching, river watching and sitting at an outdoor area in one of the numerous, lovely eateries just watching the world amble by.

The ubiquitous Food Hall on the ground level will have heaps of breakfast options if it is just fuel that you are looking for. If you can be bothered, hop on a tram and get yourself to the Victoria Market which is nearby (or... More
