Explore Melbourne’s ‘Blue Lake’ with State Library Creative Fellow and Blue Lake  author David Sornig. This now heavily-industrialised territory was once a saltwater lagoon and swamp that dominated the west of Melbourne’s CBD before European settlement.

Blue lake was also the location of the Depression-era shanty town Dudley Flats.
