Exhibition: 'Merri Creek: from wasteland to parklands' now in Whittlesea

Whittlesea panel front croppedThis exhibition continues to celebrate the outstanding community achievement since 1975 in transforming Merri Creek from a weed-smothered drain to a much-loved waterway running through a bushland corridor. It is on show at Whittlesea libraries during June and July, - see under 'read more'.

At right is part of one of the exhibition panels. You can see all ten panels with their magnificent photos and informative text here: fronts of panels (17MB file); backs of panels (9MB file).

Greater Wallan – Merri State Park

Continuous public parkland and a connected trail along the entire length of Merri Creek.

This is our vision, from the confluence of the Merri with the Yarra in Clifton Hill/Abbotsford upstream to its headwaters beyond Wallan. Currently, the much loved Merri Creek Parklands and the Merri Shared Trail only extend along a quarter of Merri Creek’s length, from the Yarra confluence to the Metropolitan Ring Road. If you want to go further north along the creek, you can’t!

The Marran Baba Parklands concept makes up another 25% of the creek’s length, but much of its implementation is still languishing ten years after Parks Victoria released the draft plan. Meanwhile, a huge 50% of Merri Creek is waiting for a coherent park plan. To fill the gap, community groups have developed a plan for a Greater Wallan-Merri State Park from Craigieburn to Wallan. Read the details of our park proposal and download the draft concept map.
