Do you know how the drainage systems works?
When it rains, some water naturally seeps into the ground. To prevent the rest of it flowing towards low-lying land, the drainage system directs it into rivers, creeks and eventually into the bay. Find out more about the drainage network.
The Shakespeare Grove main drain outlet is opposite Shakespeare Grove, St Kilda and extends into Port Phillip Bay. It’s situated at the southern end of St Kilda Beach.
