Docklands secrets - April 2015 Image

Urban jungle hides early treasure

If you look closely you’ll find a relic from Docklands’ past hidden along Wurundjeri Way.

An overgrown urban forest has all but hidden it from the view of passing traffic but intrepid explorers can still uncover a piece of Docklands’ early urban renewal history.

Original Docklands Authority signage marketing Docklands as “Melbourne’s Docklands - Victoria’s new waterfront” is still in place, along with a billboard marketing the Batman’s Hill development site.

The Docklands Authority was formed in 1991, suggesting the overgrown stretch of trees and bushes, which now cover the signage, has grown over the past 15 to 20 years.
