TOUR 1: Melbourne - A Water Sensitive City

Deaparting from  10.00am

This walking tour will include visits to the underground water recycling facility at Yarra Park (adjacent to the MCG) and the Fitzroy Gardens Project.  Along with visiting the above, delegates will have the opportunity to experience Melbourne’s iconic laneways. Four of Melbourne’s iconic laneways have undergone a green makeover as part of the $1.8M Green Your Laneway pilot program.  Much work has been completed underground, creating innovative infrastructure to capture and clean rainwater that will sustain the laneways’ plants and trees as they grow.
