Rediscover all that Dandenong Creek has to offer
Next time you're bike riding, running or walking your dog, head down to Dandenong Creek and check out the billabongs and new interpretive signage.
Together with the local community, Knox City Council and Maroondah City Council, we decided on a suite of works that seek to improve the natural amenity of Dandenong Creek and uncover the history of the area. This project includes the installation of recreational amenities such as historical signage, park benches and drinking fountains, as well as plans for billabong renewal.
A big thank you…
We would like to thank Heathmont History Group and Wurundjeri and Bunurong traditional owners for working with us to share the rich history of the area. As a result, 15 interpretive signs were installed along the creek showcasing the European and indigenous history, flora and fauna. Some of these signs include artworks commissioned by Wurundjeri artist, Ash Firebrace.
