Melbourne has always been about culture and individual style – not the showy glitz of Sydney. That may be why we don’t have quite as many distinctive landmarks which are easily recognised by overseas tourists. What are your ideas for a new Melbourne landmark that would put us on the map?
Sure, we have our beloved Arts Centre spire, but it may be time for something a little more breathtaking. Federation Square certainly is an architectural marvel, but it doesn’t really tower above the city like a truly great landmark.
The Eureka Tower is certainly very commanding, but is it really distinctive enough to warrant being named as Melbourne’s greatest landmark?
Let us know what you’d put in place as a new Melbourne landmark, and why you think it would work so well.
