23 October 201815 June 2021 Darebin Creek at Alphington [sg_popup id=”647″ event=”inherit”][/sg_popup]A favourite place close to home, Darebin Creek flows through forests, wetlands and grasslands. It reaches Melbourne’s Yarra River within a couple of kilometres from here. It attracts ducks, moor hens, ibis and blue cranes and is a peaceful oasis surrounded by Melbourne’s north-eastern suburbs. Oh, and there’s a bicycle trail which follows the creek for tens of kilometres, towards its source in the north west.
