This is a big photo and not for the feint hearted on dial up. It is a stitched photo taken from Riverland bar at Federation Wharf on the banks of the Yarra River.
From your left you can see the rowing boat sheds of which some are also bars or party venues, then across past the Alexandra Gardens.
The Arts Centre spire is to the left of Hamer Hall, a music venue. Princes Bridge sits below Hamer Hall and above is what used to be the Mobil office building, coverted into apartments over a decade ago.
Next to it is an apartment building, Quay West, and in behind sit the Herald Sun building and I think IBM.
Then we are on to Eureka, Melbourne's tallest building with the Langham Hotel below and out of site, Southgate, the first building constructed as part of the conversion of the Yarra's southern bank from industrial to commercial/business/residential.
Financial service company Price Waterhouse Coopers (could I slip in disgraced here) is to your left of Crown Casino's hotel.
Under the arch of Princes Bridge on your far right of the picture can be seen the footbridge connecting Flinders Street Station to South Bank.
