Winter School Holidays with the Werribee River Association

Rug up and ditch the screens it’s time to get outdoors to explore your local waterways this winter with The Werribee River Association.

Learn about our local river resident, the platypus and check out some cool freshwater bugs under the microscope! Contribute to a new indigenous community garden or give the gift of a garden with homemade seed cards. Swap out your old wardrobe for new at our clothes swap, or try your hand at a bit of poetry and nature writing by the always inspiring Werribee River.
