Welcome to Newport

A little history

A long time ago in the 1860's Newport was known as Williamstown Junction. In those early days workers got up at day break to walk to work. The Government of the day were originally going to make Williamstown Victoria's capital city, but due to lack of fresh water this did not happen. With the start of the gold rush Victoria experienced new founded wealth and with it came the building of Parliament House with its tall columns and abundant gold leaf. A train network using standard gauge was built up and along with it came steam travel. Melbourne was badly in need of a sanitation plant so where Science Works is today was the first of Melbourne's sewerage pumping stations. Workers risked their lives to drill large holes under the John Batman River, to put in the pipes that are part of Mebourne's water and sewerage system. The Newport Power Plant had a major rebuild, from being a dirty coal station to a modern gas turbine plant. It’s great to see Newport is in the forefront of new technologies and that we love our town and its unique heritage.
