Mr DANBY (6:50 PM) —I want to congratulate the Port Phillip Council on the opening of the promenade at St Kilda over the weekend. As usual, my electorate is the desirable tourist destination for thousands of Victorians and thousands of people from interstate and overseas. The front area from Brighton to Port Melbourne now resembles the best of international seasides around the world; I would compare it with Venice Beach in California. With the establishment of the promenade, we have a wonderful area which will be an extra attraction for the people of Victoria. I want to particularly congratulate the brilliant artists and people from the artistic sections of the Port Phillip Council for the extraordinary scale presentation of the planets. There was a 350-kilogram ball at the lighthouse and, all the way from Port Melbourne, there was a walk to Neptune or Pluto, with a representation in a few kilograms. I want to congratulate the Port Phillip Council, the artists and everyone involved in the splendid opening of the promenade and the artistic presentation of the planets.
