Students get a bird’s eye view of Port of Melbourne
Year 10 Industry and Enterprise students recently got a close look at the workings of the Port of Melbourne in Lorimer St, Port Melbourne as part of their work experience preparation unit. A highlight of the visit to the Port was a tour of the 300-metre high control tower, which dominates the port’s skyline.
After the walk outside the Tower, students were privileged to go into the Control Tower and meet the Harbour Master, who explained how Australia’s biggest container port operates. Students were introduced to the numerous career opportunities in the port which moves more than 7,000 containers a year and is worth more than $102 Billion to the Victorian economy.
