What Happened To?

We receive many enquiries asking what happened to, so here is an over-view of the most commonly asked What Happened To?

By the way, if you have one, then ask away below...

YELLOW PERIL


VAULT was a controversial public sculpture by Ron Robertson-Swann commissioned by the Melbourne City Council in 1978 for the newly built Melbourne City Square.

First installed in Melbourne's City Square in May 1980, it was moved to Batman Park in 1981 and then to it's current location outside the ACCA | Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Southbank. map

FISH | COMMONWEALTH GAMES


One of Melbourne's most popular attractions during the games were the 36 fish installations on the Yarra River between Princes Bridge and Swan Street Bridge.

Each fish represented a nation competing in the games. Initially local councils were offered the fish, and then the broader community, and today they are spread far and wide.

-:- Outside wall of fish shop near Apollo Bay pier.
-:- Wodonga has the Jamaican fish
-:- Aqualink, Box Hill
-:- Casey ARC Aquatic Centre in Patrick Northeast Drive Narre Warren
-:- South Gippy Highway, Tooradin
-:- WTC Wharf area - Melbourne World Trade Centre

CENTENARY ARCH


Although there have been a number of arches over the years, Melbourne's 2001 Centenary Of Federation Arch was moved from it's home near Princes Bridge to the Hume Council where it lays un-assembled behind its depot sheds.

GIANT WHEEL


Well, this one is a little harder to track as it continually moves around.

The big Giant Sky Wheel first seen on the Geelong Foreshore, then Birrarung Marr (2007-2008), then the Mornington Peninsula Rye Foreshore during the Christmas Carnival (2008), then back to Birrarung Marr (2009-2010) and now back at Geelong Foreshore (2011-????).

Well, since they were taken over by Cadbury Schweppes, nothing much has happened to Tarax Soft Drinks. View History Tarax Soft Drinks
