A quick tour of the Moonee Ponds Creek Catchment from the farmland of Yuroke, through Woodlands Historic Park, past Melbourne Airport and the Greenvale Reservoir, before making its way through the suburbs and ending at the Bolte Bridge where it flows into the Yarra River. This Catchment has a diverse landscape surrounding it, as we travel along the length of the Moonee Ponds Creek and its smaller tributaries you can see it provides a place for recreation, wildlife and nature. The video shows that there are a large number of birds and animals that call it home as well as residents that utilise the many paths and parkland for fitness, recreation and just relaxation. We hope you enjoy this glimpse of the MPC catchment and it inspires you to get out and explore it for yourself.
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.
