Welcome to Richmond
With the Yarra River forming a boundary on both its eastern and southern sides, Richmond is quite picturesque.
The suburb of Richmond is best known for its shopping! Factory outlets, popular retailers and fashinoable designs are right at your fingertips. Bridge Road is a dining and retail precinct that stretches for almost 2 kilometres. This is the spot to pick up a bargain, with many factory outlets and seconds stores on this street.
Swan Street, renowned for its clock tower, is full of cafes and restaurants. Located on Swan Street, The Corner Hotel is one of Melbourne's most recognised rock venues. Hosting some 'unannounced' big name gigs, these walls have seen the likes of Mick Jagger, Pink Floyd guitarist Dave Gilmour and Crowded House all perform.
To discover some new taste sensations, pop down to Victoria Street. The area between Hoddle and Church Streets is the heart of the Vietnamese community, known as 'Little Saigon'. Expect fast, fresh, bargain Asian food of amazing quality.
Cycle or walk along the pathways that snake beside the Yarra River - they are particularly beautiful at sunset. The pathways are a great opportunity to explore the city.
