Ashburton Probians aboard the ferry “Blackbird”

This keen group of Ashburton Probians recently spent an afternoon aboard the ferry “Blackbird” which makes trips along Melbourne's pretty Maribyrnong River, rejuvenated after a long history of abuse as a drain for many noxious industries along its banks, particularly in Footscray and Maribyrnong.  

“Captain Peter” provided an entertaining and very informative commentary on the history and landmarks of the area as the boat cruised up the river and passengers all enjoyed learning about Melbourne’s early development in that area.
