I'm confused about where the new venue is.
The Google link Jacinta provided indicates that it is halfway between
North Richmond station and the Yarra. But the Melways says that 678 is
at the Yarra, next to Victoria Gardens (the Ikea).
This could be surprising for anyone who chose to walk from the station
as it would be 2km instead of 600m.
