Event description

Description

Fishermans Bend is a former industrial area catapulted into a new future when it was re-zoned to capital city zone in 2012.

At present, Fishermans Bend is extremely hostile to walking. The walking network is fragmented and limited.

Planning for the future imagines that Fishermans Bend will "boast unprecedented levels of walking, cycling and public transport connectivity that will set a new benchmark for Melbourne".

On this Jane's Walk, experience current conditions on a Friday afternoon and dream of future walking happiness and the transformation needed to achieve it.

Along the way, find out snippetes and stories of the history of Fishermans Bend.

The walk will traverse the Sandridge and Lorimer precincts. Fishermans Bend is 485 ha - too big to explore in two hours!

Meeting place

On the Port Melbourne side of Stop 127 on the 109.

Note: The walk begins and ends at different places

The walk begins at Stop 127 on the 109, and ends on Lorimer Street, a short walk to Southern Cross, or catch bus 237 back to Southern Cross Station to connect with the public transport network.

About Jane's Walk

Jane’s Walk is an annual festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by urbanist Jane Jacobs.

Jane’s Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect..

Walks take place in hundreds of cities around the world. Join the global Jane’s Walk Festival this May 4th, 5th, and 6th in Melbourne.
