A panoramic view of Docklands and the Melbourne City Skyline taken from Waterfront City, looking across Victoria Harbour. Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. 20 July, 2006.

Features include (from left), some commercial and residential buildings along the harbour at New Quay, the Seven Network digital broadcast centre, the Telstra Dome (Docklands Stadium), some of the original (now renovated) Melbourne docks sheds on Central Pier, and commercial buildings, including the colourful lowrise National Australia Bank headquarters.

In the background is the Melbourne CBD skyline, including the Rialto Towers (the tallest office building in the Southern Hemisphere) and the Eureka Tower (the tallest residential building in the world). The construction in progress of some buildings in Docklands shows the still evolving nature of this part of the city.
