There’s a lot of conjecture surrounding Melbourne’s best view point, these are our top 5 from high to low.
The view from the Skydeck. The Eureka tower was named for the 1850′s goldfield rebellion that would go on to play a defining role in Australian politics. It’s going to be 20% cheaper and open all night this Saturday/Sunday for White Night.
The Lui bar is attached to Bistro Vue at the Rialto. Unlike the bistro, most people can afford a drink here and the views are pretty spectacular.
The cityscape from the Bolte Bridge as you come into Melbourne from the airport is just beautiful, especially at night. Stopping to take a photo is illegal and probably dangerous.
From the balcony of the Shrine of Remembrance, the view through the park, straight along St. Kilda Rd. & Swanston St. is lovely and balanced. The serenity of the shrine offers a pleasant contrast to the bustle of the city before you.
It’s hard to choose a favourite view from the banks of the Yarra. From Southbank, in front of the Hammer Hall look north across the river to the city in the fading light. From Birrarung Mar on the Northern bank look up past the Princes Bridge to the west.
