Merri Creek Management Committee

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung People of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the land of the Merri Merri.

LanaDaubermannCards fanLocal artist, Lana Daubermann's solo exhibition, The Light Between (at Pentridge's Divisions Gallery until 14 August), takes us to quiet spaces along Merri Creek. Lana has packs of eight greeting cards for sale at the gallery or on her website and she is generously donating $25 from each pack to the Merri Creek Environment Fund.

Like many people during the lockdowns, Lana gravitated toward Merri Creek and was inspired by what she found. The 5km restriction made her aware of the lack of public green space available in the densely built suburbs of Brunswick, Coburg and Northcote.

Wurundjeri panel - featureSee a web version of these fabulous panels which 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: fronts of panels (17MB file); backs of panels (9MB file).

The two metre size panels were originally displayed at libraries and other public places throughout the Merri Creek catchment over 16 months until late 2016, in celebration of MCMC's 25th Anniversary.
