ABOUT THE PROJECT

Yarra River BioDiversity Stage 3

The Yarra River Precinct Biodiversity Landscape Master Plan was adopted by Stonnington Council in mid 2010. The Master Plan establishes a revitalised vision for the river within the Stonnington munici­pality, comprised of extensive indigenous revegetation, wetland creation, upgrades to the existing shared pedestrian and bicycle path and other pedestrian amenities.
Stage 3 comprises of three revegetation zones – lower bank planting zone, upper bank planting zone and two landscaped public rest areas. These works will take place along the Yarra River, 100m East of the Cremorne Railway Bridge and adjoining stage 1 of the project (see previous works) and include open lawn areas, scattered native and exotic tree and shrub plantings along the Yarra River.
