A new bike pump right near the tram stop has been installed to make your bike journey as smooth as possible.
Ride up, pump up and go! This has already proven to be a popular addition to the start of the city commute from Station pier.
As part of Councils Vibrant Village project, this small community project livened up a dull fence at the entrance to Waterfront Place, Port Melbourne. Council worked with artist Trudy Rice, children from Port Melbourne Primary School, Spirit of Tasmania and Port of Melbourne.
Postcards to Port, showcased some of the children’s art and what they thought of Station Pier. The art is also dispersed with some historical photos, from the working Port years ago.
We are looking for this space to change regularly. If you have ideas, let me know.
Mike Larkin from Channel 10 came and did a weather cross during the launch. The kids were very happy to work with him.
The Annual Scarecrow festival put on a quite a show again this year. The DIGIN garden is looking particularly great with many of the old fences and netting being removed and replaced with raised garden beds all beautifully pump full of vegetable goodness. On today at Murphy’s Reserve.

Held at the Port Melbourne Trugo Club – Tucker Ave
Come along if you live around the Port Melbourne Primary School and have ideas for how to improve the roads, traffic and walkability.
This forum is your chance to let me know your ideas, as well as develop better relationships with Council, Council officers, Primary School and local residents.
Come and hear about some pedestrian crossing changes, road changes and what the future Schools plans are.
Monday 20th October from 11-12 noon will be the official opening of the Local Information and Heritage Hub.
Council, as part of the Waterfront Activation project, in conjunction with the Port of Melbourne and SHIP will provide a warm welcome for the Visitors, to Port Melbourne, and help them with local information and way finding.
The PMBA (Port Melbourne Business Association) have supported this project to help encourage the many visitors to explore the shops and businesses that this part of our wonderful city, offers.
The ‘Waterfront Welcomers’ greeters program will be based in the new Local Information and Heritage Hub on west finger pier, near the heritage crane at Station Pier. Some people may remember it being the Dog café for some time.
So if you can’t make the launch, make your way down there and see what you can find out. There will be brochures on the walking trails and Heritage trials, as well as other materials on Port Melbourne.
