Merri Creeek Management Committee

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

Bequest site plantingThe recording of the webinar, Wild Chat: Rewilding & Living Bequests in Darebin, on 5 September 2021 is now available HERE.

Hear about ‘re-wilding’ in Darebin, focusing on an unlikely candidate, the very English-style park, Oldis Gardens in Northcote, and the wild work going on there. Also find out about the Harry Nash Indigenous Garden that's being developed there, and Living Bequests. Perhaps you might be inspired to make a bequest, or to form a new Friends of Oldis Gardens group,

Organised by Merri Creek Management Committee and supported by City of Darebin.

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.
