Guest Speaker: David Sornig’s book called “Blue Lake: finding Dudley Flats and the West Melbourne Swamp”.
In Blue Lake, David Sornig examines how the 8km-square zone to the west of central Melbourne became the city’s blind spot. Once a fertile wetland with a large blue saltwater lagoon, it passed through various incarnations- from boneyards and rubbish tips; through the Depression-era Dudley Flats shanty town; to the modern-day docks. Through it all, one thing that has persisted is its uncanny, liminal quality.
Looking forward to seeing everyone
