The Western Treatment Plant (WTP) sustainably treats half of Melbourne’s sewage.

WTP is recognised as a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention.

It is also a thriving ecosystem and is one of the most popular sites for birdwatching in Victoria.

Nearly 300 species of birds have been recorded there from south-eastern Australia and east Asia.

It is a haven for tens of thousands of birds, thanks to a variety of landforms, the permanent water supply and lots of different tree and plant species.
