Wetlands, rivers and creeks are a part of what makes Melbourne’s lifestyle so enviable. There are many ways to enjoy, learn about and protect them. Sit on a riverbank and drop a fishing line into the water.

Explore the range of walking and bike paths or cook up a barbecue by the river. You can even join a community of frog monitors, become a platypus crusader or volunteer to monitor examine the health of your local waterway.

There are risks associated with any open body of water, so remember to stay safe when you visit our waterways.
