MERRI CREEK, CLIFTON HILL

Merri Creek flows about 60 km from the Great Dividing Range through Melbourne’s northern suburbs to the Yarra River. Merri Creek is an environmental, heritage and recreation corridor that draws its significance from its role as a continuous corridor as it does from the qualities of individual reaches. All areas of the Creek are important because they contribute to the linking of areas of environmental, heritage and recreational value along the Creek.

In the vicinity of Queens Pde/Heidelberg Rd, the Creek wends its way through several suburbs as it meanders to join the Yarra River in Abbotsford. An idyllic little spot along the creek is this little cul-de-sac in Clifton Hill, where a footbridge crosses the water. The many oak trees along the waterway give a European appearance to the locale.

  1. Great photo Nick,
    Although I haven't visited this exact spot I have been near. It certainly does have a European look about it. Autumn maybe but certainly not winter! I think we are having colder temperatures here in Bonnie Scotland at the moment. I just August will get it's act together because July has been a wash out! Enjoy your spring... it can't be too far away.

  4. Stunning capture in a mix of aspects, near to the creek! Amazing view of the place; a lovely mix of leaves, perhaps those are fungi on an old trunk...
