Exploring the oft-forgotten ecologies of Birrarung, stopping along the way for conversations about the rivers future.

About this Event

Building on the success of the 2019 tour, Waterfront: Forgotten Ecologies of Birrarung is a bicycle journey curated by Melbourne Architours with Open House Melbourne. The 12km tour commences in South Yarra opposite Herring Island, follows the capital city trail through the former Burnley Basalt Quarry and finishes in the west at the mouth of the Moonee Ponds Creek.

From remnant vegetation and the blasted stone of the falls, to spaces where ecosystems survive away from the public eye, the journey is punctuated with a series of stops where designers and researchers share stories about the river’s former condition and explore how its past might inform its future regeneration.

Presented by Melbourne Architours and Open House Melbourne as part of Waterfront for Melbourne Design Week 2020, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.

Access Requirements: Bike tour, BYO bike and helmet

Tour Starts: 154 Alexandra Ave, South Yarra
