Look Back to Port Melbourne in the 1990s

Australian Hobby

Westgate Park, Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia


I believe Westgate Park celebrated its 30th birthday today. Congratulations! It really is a wonderful place so near to the Melbourne CBD.

Here are some quick scans of pics from the 90s. Gee, I think my camera gear has come a long way. I have heaps more photos from Port Melbourne but where they are and how much time to scan them is a wonder.

Here are some mighty Zebra Finches as seen with Michael Atzeni in August.  

I know they are popular pets but as always I love seeing such wonders in the wild. May their numbers get bigger and bigger.
