The Darebin Parklands are home to a diverse range of birds that make use of many avian habitats including Grasslands, Wetlands and Grassy Woodlands. These habitats support a variety of bird species. Revegetation works throughout the Catchment have improved the vegetation structure of a previously degraded landscape transforming it into suitable bird habitat. A visit to the Darebin Creek will enable you to observe some of the many birds that have made it their home.

You may see a brochure of the various bird types found in the Parklands by clicking the highlighted link.
