A public event and panel discussion led by members of the Birrarung Council as the voice of the river. Council members and invited guests will share views about how our understanding of bi-cultural approaches, sustainable design and the history of the Yarra River (Birrarung) can inform our ideas for regenerating the Punt Road to Wallen Road river corridor.
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.
