Night Shots - Melbourne

Sometimes, some of the best images are when you look at something differently.
Rialto Towers is a member of the World Federation of Great Towers. It has 58 floors above street level and 8 below. From street level up it measures 253m (830ft). The structure was built in 1986 by Australian developer Bruno Grollo, who was also responsible for the Eureka Tower. The former observation deck, on the 55th floor, is now the setting for the Vue de Monde restaurant, one of the city’s most spectacular places to dine, with panoramic views over Melbourne. The lift travels from the ground floor to the 55th floor in 38 seconds and is one of the fastest in the world.

Exploring the city by night, gives a completely different perspective.

Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) celebrates images on multimedia and film. Across four floors of the Alfred Deakin Building, the ACMA has two multi-format cinemas and the world’s largest screen gallery.

Federation Square
One of Melbourne’s newest public spaces, Federation square opened in October 2002 to commemorate the centenary of the federation of the Australian. The square hosts up to 2,000 events each year. It’s architectural highlight is the geometric design of the Atrium building, a covered public space that is a hotspot for exhibitions, festivals, book markets, wine showcases and public art installations.

Fireworks are always a winner!
especially when there's someone wakeboarding by moonlight...
