Amphlett Lane Funded For Walking Tour Podcast

Melbourne’s Amphlett Lane, named after Divinyls singer Chrissy Amphlett, will soon have a podcast and walking tour after funding approval by the Victorian Government.

Details of the walk, featuring its own audio soundtrack, were revealed by Victoria’s Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley.

Amphlett Lane was named in honour of the late Chrissy Amphlett in 2015. The Lane was officially opened by Chrissy’s husband Charley Drayton and her cousin Little Patti (Amphlett) on 15 February, 2015.

Jessica Adams, who started the Amphlett Lane project, hopes other parts of Australia will follow Victoria’s lead. ‘There are so many amazing Australian bands and performers who are strongly associated with their home towns, or adopted home towns. A guided walking tour is a great way to get more from a city, but also to discover things you may not have known, about the artists behind the laneway, the bridge or the plaque,” she said.

The Amphlett Podcast will take music fans on a tour of significant locations important to the life of Chrissy Amphlett around Melbourne and her hometown Geelong.
