Join us for a fascinating visit to Murrk Ngubitj Yarram Yaluk which means ‘headwaters of continuous flowing river’ in Wadawurrung language and learn more about Barwon Water’s current project to transform the former Bellarine Basin site into more than 30 hectares of environmental and public space for the community to access. Working closely with the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners and the wider community, the project seeks to reimagine the space and enhance the unique and natural features of the Bellarine Peninsula using sustainable design and management practices.

Enjoy a tour of the site followed by a drawing activity with local artist Ryan Brearley exploring the natural landscape.
