Docklands Dollars 3008
By now I’m hoping you will have become aware of Docklands Dollars 3008 – our new program to support locals spending locally.
We’ve partnered with Lendlease, MAB, Mirvac and The District Docklands to offer a 25 per cent rebate (up to $25) when a Docklands resident spends at an eligible Docklands business. It’s a simple registration and redemption process which we hope will be a stimulus for you to spend locally.
In addition, we are still supporting visitors to Docklands with our original Docklands Dollars campaign. So, if you’ve got friends or family wanting to come and stay then have them register on the Docklands Dollars website and they could be rebated up to $210 for a two-night stay.
Markets, markets and markets
Docklands is now host to three separate markets. The District Docklands continues to host its Makers Market on the last Sunday of each month. The Docklands Community Markets are hosted along NewQuay promenade on the second and fourth Sunday of each month and now we have the Docklands Twilight Markets on the first and third Saturday of each month.
We’ve been working with a fantastic organisation called Renew Australia in recent months. It’s been tasked to activate vacant shopfronts and street-facing offices in Docklands.
You may have seen some of its artwork decals adorn windows. Starting late March this will lead to actual activations, workshops, galleries and pop-up stores in these sites. Keep an eye out on our socials – Instagram @docklandsmelb to stay up to date with what’s coming •
