Merri Creek Management Committee

Tarnuk means water bowl. These bowls were made out of gnarled growths on the River Red Gums of the Moonee Ponds Creek by the local Gunung Willam Balluk tribe.

The renaming of the Wright Street Retarding Basin to The Tarnuk was to acknowledge the Woiwurung Clan's story of the 'The Great Flood', which is the story about the creation of Port Phillip Bay.
