Pokéstops to lure new visitors

31 Aug 2016

By Mindy Gill

Docklands may soon be gripped with a frenzy of augmented reality creature-catching Pokémon Go players following an initiative by Places Victoria to attract new visitors to the precinct.

Places Victoria will be placing lure modules on 17 Pokéstops in Docklands each weekend for four weeks from Saturday, August 27 to draw in players looking to increase their gaming success. 

Places Victoria general manager precincts Simon Wilson said Docklands was a great place to get outdoors and enjoy the popular Pokémon game. 

“The Pokémon revival has been hugely popular and we see activating the Docklands Pokéstops as a great way to encourage people to visit Docklands,” Mr Wilson said. “So head down to Docklands and catch as many Pokémon as you can while winding your way along the waterfront and enjoying the views of Victoria Harbour.”

The 17 Pokéstops are located along NewQuay Promenade, Harbour Esplanade and Victoria Harbour Promenade. 

Passers-by may have already noticed players roaming around the “Cow up a Tree” sculpture with their phones, ready to capture, battle and train their virtual creatures (pictured below).

Keep an eye on Places Victoria’s Facebook and Twitter feeds for more details on the activation of Pokéstops in Docklands.
