The Travellers

Address: Queensbridge St, Sandridge Bridge near, Melbourne, Victoria 3000

Years ago in a previous incarnation, the Sandridge Bridge transported thousands of new arrivals from Station Pier to Flinders Street Station and new lives beyond. After a lengthy stint as a ramshackle eyesore, it was relaunched in 2006 as a pedestrian bridge and work of art entitled: The Travellers. As the towering steel sculptures slowly slide across the Yarra, they literally and figuratively represent the journey made by migrants from all over the world and celebrate their many contributions to the state. Meanwhile, the sculpture fixed to the river bank represents the existing Koorie community and their enduring presence.
