Start your trail opposite Melbourne High School by looking up to see the River Red Gums in all their glory. Discover the wide variety of native flora that play an important role in supporting native wildlife living along the Yarra River. Head west towards the city while you take in the flow of the river, look for the Dusky Moorhen or Black Swan floating along the river. Make your way under the railway bridge and around Anton Hasell’s Twisted Bell sculpture. Be sure to stop and notice the way the bells reflect the light and movement of the river.
The ClimateWatch trail is a short, easy stroll suitable for all ages and abilities. Once you’ve monitored the trail, learn about the river’s history, cultural significance and biodiversity value by listening to the Life of the Yarra Audio Tour.
