Melbourne City Skyline from South-East

The article and photos by Paola Bianchi  

Nobody can deny that Melbourne is a gorgeous city. Have you ever seen Melb’s city skyline?
We got 4 terrific spots to see the best of the city skyline… from the south-east point of view!

Spot 1. Shrine Of Remembrance

This is the closest spot from the CBD in our list. It’s a 15-20-minute walk from Federation Square, near the Botanical Gardens. The Shrine Of Remembrance is a war memorial for the loss of lives during the First World War. The building has a 360-degree balcony where you can admire the city skyline even on a cloudy day. Open every day until 5 pm, and it’s free!

Spot 2. St Kilda Pier

This long Pier is close to Fitzroy Street and you can get there from the city in 15 minutes by tram (12, 96, 16 or 3a). This historic Pier was first constructed in 1853 to help first settlers to unload building materials, but a storm washed it away. It has been renovated since then, and now it’s a popular destination for visitors and locals. Boats and vessels usually adorn the view of the city skyline and, when windy, also with kitesurfers!

Spot 3. Point Ormond

In the neighborhood of Elwood, there is a Bay Trail used mainly by locals that enjoy walking, running or cycling right next to the sea. There are a few barbeques around the main hill where this lookout is situated on the top. The skyline view is breathtaking, especially at sunset! It’s a 5-10 minutes bike ride from the famous Luna Park in St Kilda.

Spot 4. Foreshore Reserve in Brighton

This is the most distant spot from CBD city. It’s a 30 minutes train ride or car from Flinders Station. You might have even been nearby when visiting Brighton Beach Boxes. From these colorful boxes, walk south just 10 minutes and you will find this little Reserve. There is a parking lot, barbeques and benches. Sit, chill and enjoy the view of Melbourne skyline on a sunny day.
