Whittaker Walk

The life and times of Alan Whittaker will be commemorated in a walk through Port Melbourne, beginning near Beacon Vista [between Station and Princes Piers] on Sunday 7 November from 11 am.
Alan Whitaker, waterside worker and Gallipoli veteran, was shot by police during a bitter waterfront dispute in 1928.
To hear more of Whitaker's life and the Port Melbourne in which it was lived, join the walk and end up at the Port Melbourne Bowling Club afterwards.
Perce White, former mayor of Port Melbourne, and a veteran of the waterfront, addresses the crowd in 2009
