Jona Eselaye David

Life in, and connection to, Hobsons Bay

In 2018, Jona ventured into Altona as a young university student moving out of her family home.

She fell in love with the rich industrial history of this special seaside suburb and the community's connection with the local wetlands and wildlife.

Since then, Jona and her young family proudly call Altona their home. They can be spotted strolling through the gallery of the Louis Joel centre, visiting the Altona Community Garden, or enjoying breakfast at The 6th Child Cafe.
