MERRI CREEK - YARRA RIVER JUNCTION

The Merri Creek is a waterway in southern parts of Victoria, Australia which flows through the northern suburbs of Melbourne. It begins in Wallan north of Melbourne and flows south for 70 km until it joins the Yarra River at Dights Falls. The area where the creek meets the river was traditionally the location for large gatherings of the Wurundjeri people and is suspected to have been the location for one of the earliest land treaties in Australia between Indigenous Australians and European settlers.

The landscape around the junction of the Merri Creek with the Yarra River and the nearby Dights Falls is quite an idyllic one, with major conservation and beautification works. One might think one is in the country if it weren't for the huge overpass where the Eastern Freeway passes over the Creek and leads to the outer suburbs. The CBD is only 2.5 km away.
