As vaccine restrictions are relaxed, the nightlife in Richmond is returning to normal, with bars, restaurants, hotels and live music venues able to cater to all comers.

And there was plenty on offer along Swan St, Bridge Rd, Victoria St and all spots in between.

It really is time to venture out and support your local hospitality venues.
