Get your top hat and tassells out, it’s time to check out ‘The Spectacular Cabaret Showboat’ on The Lady Cutler.
As featured in the new Docklands News, this floating funboat takes off on Saturday 19th June. This exciting night is a 3.5 hour cruise featuring, Live Music, Comedy, a Magician, glamorous showgirls from the Moulin Rouge and Lido (coz we all want a touch of that glamour!).
Enjoy a three course ‘cavery style’ (i’m not quite sure what that means but it doesn’t sound vegetarian) meal plus a 1.5 hour cabaret show. How deliciously camp!
For more details, go to the Lady Cutler Website

A very interesting meeting occurred at Digital Harbour on Thursday 10th September. Living and working at Melbourne’s Docklands, it was great to be able to convene with other business owners here to discuss ideas for future success. Here we touch upon some of the key points discussed at the meeting.
- Locals perceive that the visitors who come by Docklands consist of people who enjoy sporting events at Etihad Stadium, tourists from greater Melbourne who have come to see the SkyWheel or the new shopping precinct, or tourists coming to try dining in the Docklands area.
- Some locals are thinking that artists could be given free rent for vacant, disused or awaiting development spaces. This could draw extra tourists to the area.
- Residents note that they really love the sense of community in Docklands, and feel it is further supported by the 3008 Docklands magazine.
- Residents feel that the media has been unfairly negative about the area, and that the City of Melbourne needs to do more to promote the Docklands area.
- Having the City Circle tram run free to Docklands has brought more people to the area.
- Having a post office in Docklands is great, as is the medical centre.
- The Volvo Ocean Race was a successful event which drew many visitors to Docklands.
