It's so sad to hear that the Yarra is polluted. Pollution is such a terrible thing, but I can't help but think that it's my fault, as much as I hate it terribly.

This allows me to see into the minds of people! That's right, I can actually see what they're thinking!

LOL- The Torrens that runs through Adelaide is pretty foul, too. About a month ago, the Torrens Lake was 'accidently' drained, and was a stinking mud hole, with garbage, bikes, debris, you name it, it was in there! I think most rivers that run through a city are pretty much polluted!

Sadly, I don't think there is.

What about the beaches?

It's not that bad. The shark attacks are something to be a little bit worried about. :P

I don't think (and correct me if I'm wrong) that South Australia had any shark attacks this year... but we had a couple last year.

Just to clarify the whole "The Yarra is Polluted" issue.

Yes it is polluted in its lower reaches but this is true of any river that flows through or near a city. It is worth noting though that most of the river is actually in excellent condition and as far as the lower reaches go (i.e. the bit people most associate with Melbourne) conditions have actually greatly improved since the 1980s. Fish are now able to fully utilise most of the river that moves through the city.

The reason the Yarra still looks polluted (and many people forget this) is that it is a silt-bed river. Unlike many other rivers the Yarra's bottom is made up of a mixture of silt, mud and sand where as many other more 'pristine' rivers have rock beds.

The end result is that the Yarra always looks murky since so much of that silt is present in the water itself as the river flow agitates the riverbed.

Don't forget each year Melbournians throw themselves into the Yarra as part of the Moomba Birdman Rally with nary a health issue.

Oh and yes... I'm from Melbourne. Hi. :D

Well, it is widely known throughout Australia that Victorians are... strange! LOL. I, myself, choose not to tell people I was born there!

Another Melbournian *waves*

As far as the Yarra River goes - I spent half my life in the Yarra when I was growing up. It's almost as murky around these parts as down in the city, but very clean. Lots of fish, lots of platypus - all very healthy

Hey,

I'm Dani (as the username would suggest) and I'm an 18 year old from Adelaide. I'm in my first year of uni studying a Bachelor of Media (Creative Arts stream), and very much enjoying it.

I've been playing sims for years and years. And years. I download way too much cc and drool over everyone's pictures, read stories and generally get in the mood to play...but then I'm bored within 30 minutes, if that. But I keep coming back :P

I love the stories people write about their sims, and that inspired me to write my own, which you can find on here *cough*shamelessadveristing*cough*
