Local’s imaging of Victoria Harbour

30 Sep 2020

Local’s imaging of Victoria Harbour Image

By Janette Corcoran

On Wednesday, September 3, the DRG (Docklands Representative Group) hosted its second online forum. The topic was a locals’ imagining of Victoria Harbour.

After a false start in the previous week, gremlins were removed and the webinar proceeded having received over 130 registrations. And the video has now had over 220 views!

The format comprised two parts. The first was a snapshot of Victoria Harbour – its history was presented by Development Victoria; a wildlife overview was presented by the Yarra River Keeper Association; and the regulatory and health aspects were presented by the City of Melbourne.

The second part comprised four local “pitches” of ideas for Victoria Harbour. And the DRG is very grateful to Dragon Boats, Alma Doepel, Whittley Boating Club and local resident, Linda Dugan, for putting such effort into their presentations. These can be viewed through the DRG’s website.

Perhaps the greatest benefit of the evening is the connections that are being made between various Docklands “locals” – be they residents, frequent visitors or regular users of the harbour. And, the DRG is already discussing ways – post COVID-19 – how the Victoria Harbour conversation can be continued •
