From Quiz
The Capital Melbourne is My City

Answer: Yarra River

The Yarra River starts in the Central Highlands of Victoria and the southern lowest section of the river is where Melbourne was settled. The river is known as the upside down river due to its colour being a dirty brown. The colour is not caused by pollution but by the clay being circulated in the water.

Port Phillip is accessed through an entrance known as The Rip because of its strong tidal streams. Port Phillip itself is not a deep bay therefore any ships docking at Melbourne's port must be guided through the shipping lines by the Port Authorities. The bayside suburbs of Melbourne are the most sought after and expensive, with the attraction of golden sanded beaches, bay views and the twinkling lights at night of Melbourne.
