Chamber update March 2019

28 Feb 2019

The Summer Campaign

The chamber been running the Docklands Summer Campaign – a range of events and activations combining business offers in Docklands.

We started off with Port Phillip Ferries and Hoyts where we brought 40 beaming faces from Portarlington to Docklands for the day. The feedback was amazing, and we will be offering this as a regular attraction particularly when the Docklands-Geelong route begins.

We then had a gorgeous Valentine’s night aboard Melbourne Boat Hire’s Birrarung, followed by a truly huge three-course feast at Berth.

Another 40 people attended “We’re doing Docklands” – combining a meal and drink at Urban Alley with unlimited fun at Archie Brothers. Such a night and one we’ll be sure to repeat.

Finally, we finished off with progressive dining at Merchant Society and TAP831. These certainly won’t be our last offerings so keep an eye out on our socials for some amazing specials. To give you a guide, every one of these was at least 30 per cent under retail cost.

Run 4 The Kids

Run 4 The Kids is quickly sneaking up on us. This iconic Melbourne event, attracting some 40,000 runners and spectators is returning to Docklands for the start and finish.

For the first time ever both the long and the short run will head over the Bolte Bridge. If you are a business in Docklands, then Run 4 The Kids has some amazing branding and advertising available. Follow our e-newsletter and socials to find out more.

The harbour is alive

As a long-term resident of Docklands, it’s been amazing to see the subtle and then not-so-subtle changes that have occurred.

Sitting on my balcony last Sunday the sight of the harbour with so much motion was heartwarming.

The arrival of the Go Boats has certainly created a buzz. In just one day their boats clocked some 300km up and down the Yarra. Combine that Melbourne Boat Hire’s fleet and the revamped Lady Cutler being packed out it was gorgeous to see.

The Harbour is our future as a precinct.
