Open Nature: Greenline – The Big Picture


Join City of Melbourne’s Lord Mayor Sally Capp for Greenline: The Big Picture and learn more about the vision for this city-shaping project that will transform the north bank of the Yarra River – Birrarung.

Delivering an uninterrupted, 4km journey from Birrarung Marr to the Bolte Bridge, the Greenline will become a premier destination for Melbourne and celebrate the rich Aboriginal culture and city heritage, while enhancing the river environment.

Hosted by Open House Melbourne’s President of the Board, Stuart Harrison, the event will include an informal presentation by the Lord Mayor, a panel discussion exploring the ‘big picture’ design strategy for the project and its contribution to Melbourne’s built and natural environment. The event includes a Q+A session for audience participation.
