Where the Punt Comes From

Burnley Harbour is hidden behind the South Eastern Arterial. The excavation that cut through the peninsular on the north bank of the Yarra River to create Herring Island also let water into Richmond quarry and created the harbour where Parks Victoria keeps its water craft. Cyclists know that the bike path, on pontoons at this point, swings open when the Parks' water craft enter or leave the harbour. There is also a set of climbing walls sheltered by the free-way and every year the Contemporary Art Society runs a weekend art show there - all hidden treasures of Melbourne.
