After visiting the library (my last post), you can stroll by either side of the Yarra River that runs through the city…
or take a walk down to the Docklands, an urban harbor district, still under development.
At night, you might walk 360 degrees inside the top of the 975-foot-tall Eureka Tower and see the lights sparkle in every part of the city.
And finally, you can photograph the city from your apartment.
While visiting a family member at the Tuck School of Business, I took this night image of Tuck Hall. Founded in 1900 as the first business management school in the world, Tuck is named after its founding family. It is part of New Hampshire’s Dartmouth College, which dates back to colonial times and is named after the British Earl of Dartmouth.
The dazzle of lights is even more enticing when a shimmering river flows through the city.

Day or night, Kings Park in Perth, Australia, bustles with people taking in the view of the skyline and the Swan River. The park, located on a hill overlooking the city, is the largest inner city park in the world.
When the city lights come on a night, one can forget about everything but the sparkle.
