Led by one of our friendly Koorie guides, this Birrarung Falls Walk will introduce you to Melbourne’s Aboriginal and early settlement history along Birrarung Marr (Beside the River of Mists or the Yarra River).
Beginning at the Melbourne Convention Centre, the walk takes in the Birrarung Wilam (Common Ground) Aboriginal art installations, which gives a Kulin perspective to the knowledge you will gain during this fascinating journey. As the group meanders along the Birrarung Marr, your friendly Koorie guide and educator will take you through significant sites and landmarks including the site of the Elizabeth Street Creek and the original location of the Birrarung Falls where you will be able to look down to the first wharves constructed at the time of settlement and the long disappeared turning basins for sailing ships.
