Waterfront: The Great Birrarung Parkland by Boat

Following film screenings and a panel discussion at Fed Square that explore and reflect upon our relationship with the Birrarung, join a boat tour of the proposed site of the Great Birrarung Parkland. This boat tour aims to increase public awareness of the river’s issues, advocate for the river, and bring our community together around a proposed vision for the parkland.

Speakers include:

  • Wurundjeri members, Birrarung Council, Yarra Riverkeeper Association

Access Requirements: Passengers must be able to manage stairs to board and disembark the vessel on their own or be assisted by their carers only, as boat staff are not permitted to assist.

This event is part of ‘Waterfront: The Great Birrarung Parkland’ series – a three-part public program including film, panel discussion and a boat tour. All are focused on the Yarra River as one integrated living entity and advocate for Indigenous rights and values and for a more ecologically balanced future Melbourne. The series aims to highlight the design-driven regeneration of the river corridor between Punt Road, Cremorne and Wallen Road, Burnley.
