Discover The True Beauty Of Australia – Docklands, Victoria

Collaboration with STRUTHer Luke

 

Docklands is an inner-western suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, located just 2km from Melbourne's Central Business District and fronts the Yarra River and Victoria Harbour.

 

Originally used by container ships but abandoned during the 1970s with the advent of modern shipping practices further downstream, Docklands is being redeveloped into a modern residential, leisure, sporting and dining precinct.

 

Docklands is now home to several of Melbourne's modern landmarks, including Etihad Stadium, the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, Bolte Bridge and Southern Cross Station which is the hub of the state's regional rail network.

 

Docklands has created an extensive waterfront aspect for the heart of Melbourne. Wide promenades beside the harbour and river are lined with apartment buildings, restaurants, retail outlets and areas of open space which also serve as outdoor art galleries with sculptures, figurines and other forms of creative contemporary artwork on display.

 

VicUrban promotes its vision of Docklands as being a major tourist attraction and projected over 20 million visitors a year and a future residential population of over 20,000.
