Imagine the Yarra Community Event

Where: Warburton Arts Centre, 3409 Warburton Highway, Warburton (google map)

We'll be joining the Yarra Strategic Plan team at the Imagine the Yarra Community Event. Come along and share your Yarra story and tell us what's important to you.

In particular, we'll be asking how you connect with your local waterway and what aspects make it special.

The Imagine the Yarra Community Event is a family friendly event that will be a celebration of the Yarra. It will provide multiple opportunities for you to meet people, share your story and talk to experts about the future of the Yarra.

Your say will help protect and improve the Yarra catchment for future generations!
