We’re exploring the development of a maritime heritage area in and around Docklands, and the Birrarung Yarra River, together with the Victorian Government.
One of the key assets of the area is the Mission to Seafarers building at 717 Flinders Street.
Built in 1917 by the Mission to Seafarers, this heritage-listed building at North Wharf, Docklands, is an important part of Melbourne’s maritime history.
The building spans 2030 square metres and currently includes a consecrated chapel, courtyard, domed room, hall and other multifunctional smaller spaces.
