How to get to Southgate and Southbank [on foot]

A short walk from the centre of Melbourne [Federation Square], takes you across Princes Bridge [south] and Southgate is immediately on your right. If you are on the left side of the bridge, take the steps down and keep left walking back underneath Princes Bridge alongside the river.

If you are on the right side of Princes Bridge, take the first set of steps in front of the entertainment complex (spire) or walk a little further along and take the walkway on your right which curves back down towards the river.
