Delighted to see the Women's Welcome Home Rotunda has been painted. It had been looking a bit neglected. I like the Rotunda for the shelter it gives as well as the slight elevation above the water.
The rotunda is of state significance and is on the Victorian Heritage Register.
'The Port Melbourne Band Rotunda was built in 1918 and officially opened on 27 October 1918. It was presented to the council by the Port Melbourne Women's Welcome Home Committee in honour of the Australians who fought in the First World War. The committee met the cost of construction from their own subscriptions'.
The detailed citation is at;5482
