Big games fishery

Docklands has its own collection of Commonwealth Games mementos.

North Wharf is home to four of the 72 fish sculptures created for the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games.

The fish were part of the opening ceremony and were displayed on pontoons in the middle of the Yarra River throughout the games.

Each of the 72 fish represents one of the countries that competed in the games and after the event finished they were distributed around Victoria.

Four of the sculptures can now be found in Wharf Lane at North Wharf.

Take a walk down the lane and you’ll find the Nile perch of Nigeria, the hammerhead shark from Norfolk Island, Guernsey’s conger eel and the bat ray of Pakistan.
