Facts About Port Melbourne
- Port Melbourne was officially founded in 1860 and was one of the first regions in Victoria to be given municipal status. However, people had been living there since as early as 1839, and it had a rather large population influx during the 1850s gold rush.
- The Westgate Bridge which opened in 1978 has one end in Port Melbourne. It is twice as long as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and at 58 metres clearance it is one of the highest bridges in Australia.
- Like much of Melbourne, in the 1980s an extensive gentrification process began that renovated what was once regarded as a slum town into a heart of industry and the new middle class. It would eventually be combined with the Cities of St Kilda and the City of South Melbourne to create the City of Port Phillip.
