Located underneath Princes bridge on St Kilda Road, This is good bar by the banks of the river. Full bar available at reasonable prices. Good food available but not fine dining. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

I’ve always enjoyed going to Riverland for a few drinks. Great atmosphere and great views over looking the yarra river. The drinks prices are high but the atmosphere and view are worth it especially at sunset or night time. I went there for lunch last...More

Nicely sited on the river, interesting location, decent food. If coming from federation square come by the bridge and take the elevator down. Other ways require a lot of stair climbing.

Always make a point of calling in on a sunny day when in Melbourne. Great service with really pleasant staff, great snack food like Bratwurst etc. Definitely a favourite. See you next year

Had a very good tasty burger. Great view in a private little area along the side of the river. Good shelter as it started raining.

This is a lovely restaurant in a nice position on the River Yarra right next to Federation Square. The food is good, there is a varied menu and it is quite reasonable.

Description
Riverland is the original waterfront icon in Melbourne where you can escape the daily grind in our urban beer garden hideaway. This iconic venue is situated on the banks of the Yarra in the historic Federation Wharf vaults, just below Federation Square. Our year round outdoor venue is the ideal spot for beers and bites while soaking up the sun in summer or basking under the heaters and warming up with one of our winter cocktails in the cooler months. Riverland provides a relaxed warm atmosphere where people can enjoy the company of friends or grab a quick drink and BBQ sausage before the game.
