About Us

The first Docklands Community News edition was published in 2003. Since then we have grown at the same speed as the Docklands, looking to serve the community in the best way possible.  In October 2009 we modified our name to be simply the Docklands News.

The Docklands News is printed monthly and 12,000 printed copies are distributed throughout the Docklands area as well as specific outlets in neighbouring suburbs.

The Docklands News was originally established by VicUrban, the Victorian Government's development agency, as a community building tool.  Today, it is privately owned and operated by Shane Scanlan.

It is our job to inform the community of events, news and changes that are evolving around the area. We are a trusted source of information for residents, workers and visitors within the Docklands.  We are the voice of Docklands.

During our seven years of publication there have been many significant changes in the area. There has been a total investment of $4.4 billion in the project so far, with the total amount estimated to be $10 billion by 2020. 

By 2020, the Melbourne Docklands area is expected to become the home of 20,000 people, workplace of 40,000 and the destination for 55,000 visitors per day. We intend to keep you up to date with all developments throughout this time.
