Southbank history a lot more than just industrial

15 Apr 2014

The National Heritage Festival kicked off in April and Southbank will take centre stage in May during a walk through Melbourne’s history.

“Southbank – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” will take participants on a journey through the suburb, outlining the rich history of the area.

The tour looks at Southbank’s past, including its pre-settlement history and significance to the Kulin nation. It also looks at our industrial past and importance to the growth of Melbourne, through to the current day and future as a high-density suburb at the forefront of Melbourne’s population growth.

It’s a free event for anyone to join and takes off from the Southbank footbridge on the promenade on Friday, May 2 at midday.
