Where's Batman when you need him? Naaaaah, relax, this ain't Gotham City and there's no sign of The Joker or The Riddler. This is Melbourne, the graceful southern city that is the capital of Victoria.
But why the reference to Batman? Because a bloke called John Batman chose this site, famously saying it would be a great place for a village. Not surprisingly, that village is now a world-class city, so I guess Batman knew a thing or two about picking a great spot.
I took this shot from the pedestrian footbridge that links the north and south banks of the Yarra River, the same stretch of water up which Batman travelled to find a suitably inhabitable spot. To my right, when I hit the shutter, was the CBD and Flinders Street Station. To my left was Southbank, famous for its promenade, its restaurants, Eureka Tower, its office buildings and its proximity to the true heart of Melbourne - the vibrant arts precinct.
Every time I fly back to Melbourne from a trip interstate or overseas, I give Batman a nod of approval. Come on over and you'll see why he was right. Let me know before you get here and I'll take you to Batman Avenue. No kidding ....
