We share the greatest backyard in Melbourne. Our iconic rivers and creeks are the lifeblood of Melbourne’s natural landscape – they’re what makes living here great. Melbourne Water undertakes regular maintenance along our waterways, including maintaining and improving our wetlands in the area.

The Hallam Valley wetlands have undergone some minor works to improve how the wetland functions. These works include regrading of some parts of the wetland, installing new rock lined channels and planting of native vegetation. All of these works will help improve the flow of water throughout the wetland system and improve how the wetland works.
