Royston - The Capital

Post by Billy » December 5th 2017, 6:29 am

Welcome to Royston, the capital and second largest city of Jarraban. With a population of 472,000, it is small in size. However, it packs a punch, wielding significant political and economic power nationally and throughout Australasia. Since becoming Jarraban's capital in 1924, it has evolved to be a cosmopolitan and chic city, embracing the modern whilst retaining elements of the old. Today, we'll be going on a little tour.

Aerial view of the CBD and surrounding suburbs. Royston's CBD is compact but eclectic, housing important financial and political institutions, world-class eateries, vibrant nightlife and superb shopping opportunities.

The CBD at night. Abuzz early in the evening when Roystonians eat out, and then later on when revellers hit the city's numerous pubs and clubs.

Royston's waterfront precinct. Redeveloped in the late 2000s, it features a marina, offices, apartments, shops, restaurants and the historic Royston Yacht Club.


Image
Parliamentary Precinct, which incorporates several key buildings. Below is the Jarrabanian National War Memorial, built to commemorate the armed forces and those who have died or participated in wars. Left is the National Gallery & Library (completed in 2014), in the centre Parliament House (built 1928), and right the High Court of Jarraban.

Darwin St Mall in the city centre. Notable for Commonwealth Square (middle), delicious coffee shops and - for those looking to splurge - high-end boutiques.

University of Royceston (below) and St. Anne's Hospital (above to the right)


Image
North Royston. Numerous government institutions are headquartered here. In the lower half of the image is Eppa Plaza (orange building), Jarraban's second largest shopping mall. Just above is Royston Station.


Image
Norfolk Park, the city's main stadium. With a capacity of 48,000, it regularly hosts major events such as concerts, international rugby, cricket and soccer matches. Many famous sporting contests have taken place here.

Hope you enjoyed the tour! Thanks for joining me!
