- Providing a splash of green between busy Alexandra Avenue and the Yarra River, the Alexandra Gardens are a focal point for Melbourne's Moomba festivities and are a perfect vantage spot for the water sports, which are run during the festival. Elegant boat sheds dot the river bank, still routinely used by university rowing clubs. A walk along Capital City Trail leads to Southbank Promenade and the path is a popular spot for cyclists, joggers and inline skaters. During warmer months, Melbournians take advantage of the many barbecues dotting the riverbank.
