Port Melbourne RotundaPrint Page
The Port Melbourne Band Rotunda built in 1918 was presented to the council by the Port Melbourne Women`s Welcome Home Committee in honour of the Australians who fought in World War One.
The committee met the cost of construction from their own subscriptions. The location of the rotunda is particularly poignant as Port Melbourne was the point of embarkation and disembarkation for troops during the war
