Princes Bridge connects the Central Business District to the southern suburbs of Melbourne. Pedestrians cross the bridge to reach the National Gallery of Victoria and the Arts District. It is also very popular among cyclists. Trams traveling along St Kilda Road cross the bridge. When John Batman declared "This is a village place" in 1835, it was clear that Melborn needed a good bridge. The construction of the current bridge was completed in 1888. The bridge is 30 meters wide and 120 meters (400 feet) long. This sturdy bridge is made of blue stone (Melbourne's favorite building material), granite, concrete and cast iron. It has served Melburnians for more than 100 years. The Prince Bridge is one of the oldest arch bridges still in use. By the way, the bridge is named after Edward, Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VII.
This bridge is old and has a long history. It is one of the few bridges that cross the famous Yarra River. You can get water through various paths, ramps, and stairs, but on the east side near Federation Square, the left side is very useful. On the north side of the river is Flinders Street Station, which is Melbourne's main railway platform, although there are trams. Federation Square is also on the north side. The main shopping area is also here. On the south side is the NGV (National Gallery of Victoria), the art spire, and many performing arts centers (concerts, theater, theater, etc.). South Bank is the South Bank, where there are high-end cafes and restaurants. If you want to board and disembark in Yarra, there are many places to book. The larger ferry is from the north side and the smaller one is on the south side. Whether from the east or the west, the scenery from the bridge is wonderful, especially at night. You can still find some primitive construction sites in Melbourne's early buildings, such as lighting and sapphires, which were made by us.
Love this bridge, don’t love this city~
Winter day when the sun shines on the earth
Hanging out on the Prince Bridge in a down jacket
Nearby Federation Square can see the pigeons
Life is leisurely and the rhythm is super slow
The bustling domestic life is here all at once
Loneliness loneliness is not good
But speaking of it, the scenery is really beautiful
I can only stand it for a week hahaha
See you next time~
Walking on the bridge and reaping the scenery. During the ten-day tour of Melbourne, we would go for a walk near Princes Bridge every night, because this night view is so beautiful. It shows the most beautiful and most stunning scene of Melbourne. Before us. We also stumbled upon this bridge when we were going to eat. The bridge was thoughtfully installed with trails for pedestrians. We walked over here when we went to eat. It was dusk at that time, watching the sunset on the bridge, it felt particularly beautiful, the whole sky, like being dyed with salted egg yolk, and after a while, there was still light flashing, even the burning clouds came out! Moreover, the entire bridge crosses a river. Walking on this bridge, the river breeze blows, completely getting rid of the scorching heat. I think the most beautiful night view on the bridge is at night. When night comes, the rows of buildings are lit up, and there is a lot of traffic on the bridge. On the bridge, the night lights are lit up, and then the whole bridge is illuminated, and it feels like Walking on it is very romantic! My girlfriend and I met the beautiful scenery, of course, I couldn’t help but take photos~TIPS1. Attraction address: Swanston Street | St Kilda Street 2. Opening hours: 6 am to 10 pm
