Merri Creek Management Committee

Aitken Milky Beauty Heads

Aitken Creek in Craigieburn is a hive of activity as Merri Creek Management Committee (MCMC) helps to implement the ‘Aitken Creek’s Living Pathways’ project. This project, funded by a Melbourne Water Grant to Friends of Merri Creek, aims to establish pollination pathways for endangered Matted Flax Lily and engage the local community in the conservation of this urban habitat corridor. Aitken Creek is a tributary of Merri Creek in Craigieburn.

Take a tour of the creek and discover the wildlife and flora that call it home using the new interactive on line map as your guide. View the map in the browser on any web-connected device. Or download the mobile app from the Google Play Store with your Android device.

Walk: A leisurely 1.5km (one-way) walk and talk, starting at 10.30am near the main car park at Craigieburn Gardens (see map), and finishing with a picnic along the creek at 12pm. You can then join the bike ride or return (unguided) to Craigieburn Gardens.

Bike Tour: The 3.5km bike tour will depart the picnic site at 12.30pm, finishing at Amberfield Grassland Reserve, Balyang Way, Craigieburn at approximately 1.30pm.
