It's no secret that we have quite a few shutterbugs on Weekend Notes - just check out our growing photography section to see some remarkable shots of our wonderful city. From images of the Melbourne skyline, to natural landscapes, to people watching and much more- the talented Melbourne Weekend Notes team continue to capture the beauty of the city of Melbourne and it's people.

Given the popularity of the photography section, I thought it would be interesting if the Weekend Notes community could compile a list of great Melbourne photography locations. For example where could one get great shots of manicured gardens - the Botanic Gardens perhaps? Maybe you know of somewhere better. Think about Melbourne locations where one could get great shots of urban landscapes, public art and sculptures, natural landscapes, street photography, sunrises and sunsets.

So all you shutter bugs, put down your camera for a second or two and let us know where you love to take photos in Melbourne and Victoria.

We look forward to your feedback.

I enjoy going to St Kilda beach in the morning around 9.00 am. There are a few people going for a walk or jogging. It is very peaceful and you can take as many photos as you like without being interrupted.

Melbourne Zoo always provides great opportunities for shutterbugs. There's endless variety; you never know what expressions or poses you'll see from the animals. One of my favourite shots is just of dusk through the palms.

Inner city photography spots:

Flinders St Station seems like a commonly photographed Melbourne icon. The bridge over the Yarra has beautiful night views. Docklands has interesting street art and that optical illusion black and white building. Rialto tower, any of the tall apartments overlooking the city, or even one of the Melbourne uni buildings at night (eg. Law Library) at dusk or evening can be good places to take photos of the city.

Take a walk anywhere in the Dandenong Ranges, or if you can get out further head to the Black spur, clever ones can find some amazing rock formations with engaging backdrops of forest, the city and mountains and if you are positiveley lucky, wildlife that is actually wild!
