With a warming climate and a growing city, the Yarra River needs our protection more than ever.
After extensive consultation with the community, Traditional Owners, landholders, local councils and stakeholders, the Victorian Government has created the Yarra Strategic Plan.
The plan will protect our treasured Yarra River, Birrarung, and its parklands for future generations. It identifies immediate actions for the river, as well as opportunities for long-term collaborative management between agencies and Traditional Owners, guiding local planning.
The plan spans the first ten years toward achieving the 50 Year Community Vision and deliver upon the aspirations in the Wurundjeri Woi wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation’s Nhanbu narrun ba ngargunin twarn Birrarung (Ancient spirit and lore of the Yarra River).
To go into the draw to win a $200 voucher, provide feedback on the whole-of-river actions.
Public consultation closes 22 March 2020.
