The Re-imagining Tarralla Creek project seeks to enhance Tarralla Creek and surrounds in Croydon through an integrated partnership with Melbourne Water, Yarra Valley Water, and Department of Environment, Land, Water, and Planning (DELWP).

The project is one of five trial sites for Melbourne Water’s ‘Re-imagining Your Creek’ program and looks to enhance the natural environment, create a place for community to connect to nature and one another, improve connectivity, and deliver a resilient and maintainable waterway. The project will also seek to create a space for arts, culture, and education opportunities.

Objectives of the project include:

  • To ‘daylight’ the creek and promote opportunities to interact with the creek.
  • Provide habitat and increase biodiversity of the site.
  • Improve local and regional connections.

Stage 1 of the works (Croydon Wetland area between Vinter Road and Norton Road) have begun. Works include:

  • signage and temp fence set-up
    • This will be staggered through the week to allow people to become accustomed to the changes.
  • compound set-up
  • blocking of the wetland inlet to start drying 

Works are expected to be completed mid-2021. 

Council is working with project partners to enhance the area by including contemporary landscape design solutions and incorporating suggestions from the community.
