Hidden gems revealed

Hidden gems revealed Image

By Eva Garnes

Melbourne’s red-shirted visitor hosts were given an exclusive look at Docklands last month.

The City of Melbourne regularly organises familiarisation tours for the volunteers and the group descended on Docklands on November 25.

Docklands Chamber of Commerce executive officer Stefanie Schulz said: “We want to show off the diversity of what is on offer in the Docklands, for both tourists and locals. So when the City of Melbourne approached us to put this on, we never hesitated.”

Ms Schulz guided the group of volunteers around Docklands before finishing up at All Smiles reception centre in NewQuay for drinks and nibbles.

“There tend to be a lot of misconceptions about the Docklands and we wanted to show them not only the closeness of the precinct to the city, but also the hidden gems,” Ms Schulz continued.

The tour concluded with a Docklands-themed quiz, with the volunteers enthusiastically yelling out the answers, proving that they are ready to answer any questions about the area that tourists may have.
