Webb Dock Bridge is a 0.5km, grade 2 one way hike, located in Melbourne Region, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

The former Webb Dock Railway Bridge has been converted for use by pedestrians and cyclists. The bridge runs parallel with the Charles Grimes road bridge and provides a connection over the Yarra between Docklands and South Bank. Something to combine with all the other paths and attractions in the area. The line was only open from 1986 to 1996 and some of the line remains in place up at the Lorimer St. end. The bridge shape was changed considerably of course to fit in with the area, especially the aboriginal "fishing net" shape on the Yarra's Edge side, when it was opened in 2003.

About the region

Formerly known as the River Entrance Dock, Webb Dock commenced operations in the 1950s primarily to transport cargo and motorists to and from Tasmania. International container handling was also an essential feature of the facility for many years up until the 1990s.

Webb Dock has since evolved to become the largest automotive terminal in Australasia for the export and import of cars, handling around 1000 motor vehicles per day on average.

The dock is named in honour of former Melbourne Harbor Trust commissioner, J. P. Webb OBE, who was Chairman and Managing Director of the Victorian Producers’ Co-operative Company Limited and was first appointed to the Trust in 1941 as an exporters’ representative.
