Skateboarding

Street

It's probably the most famous place to skate in Melbourne, where rounds and tricks by worldwide skaters have been filmed. Although there are skate stoppers on most of the obstacles, the skating doesn't stop and it continues to be one of the mosted visited spots in the city. In fact, it was thought that putting sand under the ledges would stop the skaters but the spot won as in the end, this created many gaps, which in turn made it more fun. The spot is characterised by the ledges and gaps that fill the plaza as well as its closeness to many other spots in the area. Thousands of skaters have left their mark at this spot, especially Lewis Marnell, a Melbourne local who showed his skills there with his Firing Line for Thrasher Magazine and his execution of a gnarly switch frontside flip on the sand gap. Respect.

There are skate stoppers but you can still skate many of the ledges. The city of Melbourne has very changeable weather, but there is generally less rainfall in July and August.
