11 Reasons Why The Yarra Is Ace: A World Photo Day Celebration

It’s world photo day and we want to celebrate 177 years of photography by showcasing what makes the City of Yarra so amazing. Here are just a few reasons that we’re humbled to be part of the Yarra community.

1. Respecting and acknowledging the Wurundjeri people, who are the traditional owners of this land.

 

2.  The art – fine art, street art, performance art, you name it, we got it.

3. With hundreds of places to park your behind, food definitely makes the list.

5. The diversity, rich culture, beautiful colours and flavours. Without these we’d probably be South Yarra (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

7. Who could forget Mary Rogers helping people cross the street over on Bridge Road in Richmond

 

and councils efforts to represent women via their social media streams.

 

8. I’m going to leave this one blank because i don’t know how to describe whatever this is.

 

9. Love it or hate it the deconstructed coffee is said to have originated in Abbotsford…

 

Oops wrong one, sorry about that. Here it is…

 

10. The iconic Edinburgh Gardens. A place for friends, family and community.

 

Which more importantly, is the location of a Pikachu.

 

11. And last but not least is Yarra’s commitment to sustainability.

 

Unfortunately Kanye’s Pablo pop-up store didn’t make the list, better luck next time buddy.
