Fishermans Bend is Australia’s largest urban renewal project covering approximately 480 hectares in the heart of Melbourne. Fishermans Bend will consist of five precincts across two municipalities – the City of Melbourne and the City of Port Phillip – and connects Melbourne’s CBD to the bay.

It is expected that by 2050, it will be home to approximately 80,000 residents and provide employment for up to 80,000 people.

The City of Melbourne is working with the Fishermans Bend Taskforce, City of Port Phillip and other government agencies to progress precinct planning for Fishermans Bend
