Launch of a NEW Hub for the Waterfront Welcomers of Port Melbourne 2

INVITATION
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.local heritage hub

  1. Hi Bernadene,

    I am a resident of Port Melbourne and have joined a small group of volunteers to become the first Waterfront Welcomers – a role I am looking forward to. I have just written my latest blog post about living in Port Melbourne, and would love you to have a look at it please, and follow my blog if you feel so inclined.

    I look forward to reading more on your blog too.

    Regards,

  2. Hi Genevieve,
    I read your blog last week and was very excited that you were interested in becoming a waterfront welcomer. It’s such a terrific program. I had a sneak preview yesterday in the heritage hub, on finger pier, with the historical information on its walls. It is all coming together so well.

    Looking forward to meeting you.
    Regards
    Bernadene
