Kororoit Creek

Kororoit Creek, which winds its way from its headwaters at Mount Aitken, Deverall Hill and Beattie Hill to enter Port Philip Bay 81 kilometres downstream at Altona, is one of Melbourne's major waterways and one of the most important natural assets in Melbourne's west.

It is home to significant animal species such as the Growling Grass Frog and the Striped Legless Lizard, as well as internationally recognised migratory birds. Remnant native vegetation also survives in some places, including Red River Gum and White Mangroves.

The riperian zones along the Kororoit Creek also contain extensive Aboriginal archaeological material and notable places of post European heritage.

Our vision for Kororoit Creek is for it to be one of Melbourne's most popular and well utilised waterways, rivalling long-established open space corridors such as the Yarra River and Merri Creek.

There is a long-term strategy to protect, manage and improve access to a 40km stretch of Kororoit Creek from Toolern Vale, north east of Melton, to where the creek enters Port Phillip Bay in Altona.

Outlined in the strategy are a range of actions to guide and assist local governments, agencies of the Victorian Government and Friends groups on issues relating to biodiversity, planning controls, landscape character, trails and recreation, cultural heritage and waterway management.
