    Worth a visit

    Saw this after boarding the tram to Glenelg and later stopped for a photo, only wished I had seen it at night too as I reckon it would look great.

    Victoria Square fountain.

    This is a lovely fountain on Victoria Square, nice but not breathtaking. It symbolizes three Australian rivers. It is not a compelling touristic draw by itself but complements nicely the Square.
