Greater Melbourne is set around the shores of Port Phillip Bay, while the city centre is laid out in a large rectangle on the northern banks of the Yarra River, about five kilometres from the bay.Extending around the bay are a number of inner suburbs, each with its own distinct character and personality. A short tram ride from the city centre, Melbourne’s suburban neighbourhoods are a must see for anyone wanting to experience what life here is really all about.
One of the best walks on the West Coast should not be missed. Montezuma Falls is Tasmania’s highest waterfall, located near Rosebery on the state’s west coast. Rosebery is a 90-minute drive south of Burnie (125 kilometres).
Montagu Bay is a suburb of Hobart, Tasmania, located in the City of Clarence on the eastern shore of the Derwent River, about four kilometres from the city centre of greater Hobart.

The bay has a boat ramp and jetty, and is frequently filled with yachts and other vessels at anchor.

St Kilda Marina
St Kilda Marina is Melbourne’s premier marina facility situated only eight kilometres from the thriving C.B.D and only a five minute stroll to cosmopolitan Acland and Fitzroy streets.
Adjacent to the famous Cradle Mountain lies The Tarkine, one of Tasmania’s exciting wilderness frontiers. Since 2002, Tarkine Trails has specialised in providing world class guided walking tours in the Tarkine Wilderness. Shrouded in mystery and intrigue, the Tarkine contains the largest cool temperate rainforest in the southern hemisphere, remote mountain ranges, and a breathtakingly wild coastline.
Situated between Rebecca Lagoon and Sandy Cape is the small fishing port, Temma Harbour. The harbour falls in to the geographical category of the Tarkine region. Temma was once the port for the tin mining outpost of Balfour with a horse-drawn wooden tramway connecting the town and port. Nowadays, it is an isolated harbour offering shelter from the wild seas. There are a few shacks and a slipway that fishermen use to pull their boats up in bad weather. The harbour itself has a good quantity of Crayfish and Abalone as well as an abundance of Bull and She Kelp. Surprisingly there isn’t a large amount of actual fish life, probably due to large swells on the coastline.
A variety of the extremely rare Goodeniaceae (Scaevola albida) grows in just three localities in Australia, two on Flinders Island and one near Temma.
