High angle shot of the colourful textures and patterns at Cheetham Salt Works. “The Cheetham Salt Works was established in 1924 and operating until 1990. Although no longer used as an operating salt works the regime of maintaining variable water levels throughout the complex system is still maintained by Parks Victoria in its present role as a wetland environment and hence the original processes can still be interpreted today.” ( heritagecouncil.vic.gov.au)
