DESKTOP 946 - YARRA RIVER

The Yarra River (or historically, the Yarra Yarra River) is a perennial river in east-central Victoria, Australia. The lower stretches of the river are where the city of Melbourne was established in 1835 and today Greater Melbourne dominates and influences the landscape of its lower reaches. From its source in the Yarra Ranges, it flows 242 kilometres west through the Yarra Valley which opens out into plains as it winds its way through Greater Melbourne before emptying into Hobsons Bay in northernmost Port Phillip. Here it is seen in metropolitan Melbourne at Dights Falls.
