coastline and into Port Phillip Bay.

Providing attractive natural places for people to access and enjoy.

Promoting the re-establishment of natural habitat for wildlife in the Werribee River catchment.

about environmentally sustainable
practices, educating a growing and diverse
population living in the west of Melbourne.

Providing events and guided walks that promote a deep connection to country and community.

The River

Stretching 110km from the Wombat State Forest to Port Philip Bay, the The Wirribi Yaluk/Werribee River is home to the platypus, the mighty River Red Gum and the endemic Werribee Blue Box. There are a number of streams, creeks and wetlands within its catchment such as Davis Creek in Tarneit, Lollypop Creek in Wyndham Vale, Black Swamp in Harpley and Skeleton Creek in Point Cook. These waterways are a place of solace and peace for the local community, a slice of nature within an expanding urban growth corridor. The health of these waterways and natural settings are, however, impacted by the growing population. There is chemical runoff from roads and farms, and significant litter pollution entering the waterways. Not only does this affect the health of the flora and fauna that rely upon the river ecosystem for their survival, but it also affects human health and wellbeing.
