Footscray wharf gets a facelift

Footscray Wharf has received an eco friendly facelift courtesy of the Port of Melbourne.

The new look wharf includes low energy LED lights and landscaping with native shrubs and grasses. Elements of the old wharf have been maintained with original bluestones, pylons and wharf decking incorporated into the new design.

Seating has been created out of old mooring bollards for people to watch the port in action from across the river. In the future the wharf will include a commercial mooring facility.
