The Afton Street Footbridge is a hugely popular crossing point over the Maribyrnong River at Essendon. As part of the Maribyrnong River Loop Walk, the bridge offers excellent views both in an easterly and westerly direction.
I walk regularly in this area and find it to be a a haven in suburbia. The walking path follows the twists and turns of the river and a feature along the shore is the magnificent palm trees.
From a photographic viewpoint, these images were taken during the afternoon from the north side of the river. Directly adjacent to the bridge is a car park, and it can be accessed from The Boulevarde and Afton Street.
