100 year old Photos #12 - Australia

This group is a bit of a mixed bag - taken again c1910-c1920. The 1st one appears to be a botanical garden, possibly the Melbourne Botanical Gardens - if you refer to Post #11, you can see why I think this. The 2nd is coastal, you can see a township perched on the edge of the cliff. The 4th I believe is some sort of guest house, possibly in Victoria maybe no more than 50km from the CBD or even possibly located on the banks of the Yarra River, Melbourne. If you are able to identify any of these photos, please leave a comment - it would be appreciated.

And @SkillsyOz of Twitter comes through again!

It would appear this photo has been taken from land that is now the 'Collinwood Children's Farm' Refer this link for land formations that appear to be identical to those in this photo Opposite the Collingwood Childrens Farm

  1. #3 boat. This looks like the embankment on the opposite side of the yarra to the Collingwood Children's farm or around Studley Park. See

    There is a distinct fault line or path about the same level in this pic.
