Hobsons Bay QR Walks

The Laverton Magpies Nest

Join us as our host Libby Tanner guides you on a listening journey through the streets of Hobsons Bay. In this podcast we explore the Laverton Park “Magpie’s nest” plus the oldest building in Altona Meadows. Written and directed by Gina Kennedy, sound production by Alex Amster with an Auspice from the Louis Joel Arts and Community Centre and the support of a Hobsons Bay City Council Make it Happen Grant.

Local Merchants and Sponsors

Supporting a local merchant means supporting an entire community. Without our local businesses and sponsors, none of this would be possible. While you’re listening, take a second to give them a look.

(This project is supported by Hobsons Bay City Council through its Make it Happen Grant program)
