Melbourne Daily Photo
Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Fiona Clarke and Ken McKean’s Eel Trap is based on the design of a
traditional Indigenous eel trap. The plate-steel sculpture is painted red and
engraved with Indigenous designs.
A local food source, eels were once
trapped close to this site, near the shallow waterfalls that used to exist
downstream, separating the freshwater of the river from the salty water of
the bay. Eel Trap was commissioned by the City of Melbourne in 2003.
