Explore Docklands’ history

08 May 2014

Originally a wetlands, then a bustling port and now one of Melbourne’s residential and business centres, Docklands has certainly had a varied history.

This month, a free walking tour in Docklands will highlight the area’s interesting past.

Archaeologist and historian Dr Gary Presland will lead the tour, which will focus on Docklands’ environmental and human history.

The walking tour is part of the National Trust Heritage Festival, which runs from April 12 to May 26, and the tour is being run by the City of Melbourne’s library service.

The tour will be held on May 10 from 2pm to 4pm and will leaves from the Collins St exit at Southern Cross Station.

Similar tours have been held in North Melbourne, Southbank and East Melbourne.
