A must anytime of the year, day or night. Lots of spectacular sights from the trees that line the river, people, restaurants, buskers and the crowds they attract. Love walking around this area never a dull moment. Lots of bridges to cross, one even has...More

Enjoy the stroll along Southbank because it is an ever changing visual feast. The only negative was that we were struck by the number of homeless on the streets

I love to walk by the river from this side. There i a lot of good restaurants directly to the river. There is also many good hotels in the area.

A really good place to chill in the evenings with a nice view of the Yarra and a range of restaurants that offer Greek, Italian, modern Australian and Chinese cuisine.

Southbank has everything that we needed! There was no shortage of food choices, ranging from local food to asian food. Shopping can be found at the nearby casino, and sight seeing is scattered all around the area.

Enjoyed a few meals and many beers at various venues on the Southbank. Great place for people watching but exceptionally busy...especially the folk going home from work on their bikes, whizzing by and not seeming to care much for anyone's safety.

I don't think this is a question. Fact is, I have walked there both day and night and never experienced any issues. No "roughsleepers", no loitering, or potsmoking "disadvantaged" people. Perhaps it's a misconception but... More
