Melbourne Day ceremony

18 Sep 2012

Melbourne Day ceremony Image

Enterprize Park, the site of the first landing of European settlers in Melbourne, was host to a flag hoisting ceremony last month, as part of the Melbourne Day celebrations.

The Lord Mayor Robert Doyle, councillors, Melbourne Vixen’s player Geva Mendese, prominent Melburnians and a number of school children were on hand to enjoy the festivities.

The flag was raised by the Lord Mayor, Melbourne Day chairman Campbell Walker and the winner of a student leader compition  Mathilde Papon, from Caufield Junior College.

The ceremony was to celebrate Melbourne’s 177th birthday.

Enterprize Park is recognized as the site the European settlers arrived and docked on August 30, 1835.

After the Melbourne flag was proudly hoisted onto the flagpole, the party moved onto Docklands for a re-enactment of settlers landing in Melbourne.

As part of the celebrations many Melbourne businesses had special offers, including the iconic Eureka Skydeck.
