This video of Moonee Ponds Creek starts at the Yarra River and works its way upstream to Racecourse Road, Flemington. The section of the video shows the creek meandering its way through the most industrial section of its entire length. It changes in width many times and from natural waterway to concrete channel in sections. Throughout the video the habitat that it provides for the wildlife, particularly birds can be seen. Additionally the bike and walking paths that run along the creek provide a place for residents to get out and engage with the creek as well as a highway of travel during peak times for commuters to make their way to and from work.
This footage was commissioned by Melbourne Water to provide the community with an overview of the diversity of the environment and land use throughout the catchment.
