The eastern boundary of the suburb of Spotswood is formed by the 242 kilometre long Yarra River close to its mouth where it flows into Hobsons Bay. The area along the river is a large old industrial precinct with views over Yarra River, the Westgate Bridge and the Melbourne Port in the background.
Victoria is Australia's second smallest State and covers only 3% of Australia's land area but has the second highest population of all States and Territories. Victoria's mainland and islands have a total length of 2,512 kilometres coastline which is about 4.2% of Australia's 59,736 kilometres of coastline. Australia is the driest inhabited continent and Victoria is no exception although the state capital Melbourne has the reputation to have 4 seasons in one day. Victoria is located in the southeast of mainland Australia and includes the most southern point on mainland Australia at Wilsons Promontory National Park.
