THE YARRA RIVER
The lower stretches of the Yarra River are where the city of Melbourne was established in 1835. From its source in the Yarra Ranges, it flows west through the Yarra Valley, opening out into plains as it winds its way through Greater Melbourne, Hobsons Bay and Port Phillip. Greenfield is a five-minute walk from the banks of the Yarra, which runs along the south of the Fairfield boarder and is home to Fairfield Boathouse, Amphitheatre and Park. Fairfield Yarra is close to Dight Falls, the junction where Merri Creek and the Yarra River meet. With corridors of bush land, red gums, silver wattles and deep waters running through mudstone cliffs, the Yarra is a beautiful sanctuary for Fairfield’s community.

DAREBIN PARKLANDS
33 hectares of bushland reserve on the boarder of Alphington and Ivanhoe being divided by Darebin Creek, the parklands are a beautiful urban wildlife haven, where one can sit quietly and delight in the property in Melbourne. Home to echidnas, flying foxes, native fish, birds and the occasional kangaroo, the parklands are a magnificent community asset restored by members of the Darebin Parklands Association. With a rich heritage from its first indigenous owners to the famers and industrialists who later occupied the site, Darebin Parklands is a beautiful story of how concerted community action saw land saved “from the claws of the machine”, an inspiration to anyone who has a vision for improving his or her own community.
