The Moonee Ponds Creek Catchment begins to the north of Tullamarine Airport in farmland. The creek itself then meanders through Woodlands Historic Park and
suburbs such as Westmeadows, Jacana, Strathmore Heights, Oak Park, Pascoe Vale South, Essendon, Brunswick West, Moonee Ponds, Flemington, North Melbourne and Kensington, before meeting the confluence with the Yarra River at Docklands, under the Bolte Bridge. This video focuses on the Southern Section of the creek starting at the Jacana Retarding Basin Gowanbrae where flanked by parkland, walking and bike tracks it flows south through residential areas into the heavily built up areas of West Melbourne before joining the Yarra River at Docklands, under the Bolte Bridge.
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.
