They are all found in the CBD (or downtown Melbourne), except for some unpopular ones in South Melbourne.

Australia has a few similar intersections, not relating to trams:

Elwood, Melbourne (left turn from right lane) : http://maps.google.com.au/maps?ie=UT...01717&t=k&z=19

Gold Coast Hwy on Main Beach (right turn from left lane). http://maps.google.com.au/maps?ie=UT...01717&t=k&z=19

Mark.
The only reason that the thread talks about left turn from right lanes is that most countries drive on the other side of the road to Australia, thus the principle of right turn from left lanes is the same as left turns from right lanes in the rest of the world where people drive on the right.

The continuous flow intersection is an interesting concept. I imagine it could be done here in Melbourne one day.

What's the justification of last few cars driving through intersection to stop at second pair of light for oncoming left turn traffic - why not let all cars through?

The animated video helped me to understand purpose of the idea. At first I was also asking what was the point of it.
