Explore Darebin Creek Parklands

The Darebin Creek is an important northern tributary of Melbourne’s Yarra River and has its headwaters located near Woodstock to the north of Melbourne. The creek flows predominantly south for approximately 50 kilometres through several municipalities, including the Cities of Whittlesea, Darebin, Banyule and Yarra, until it meets the Yarra River at Alphington.

The Darebin Creek Catchment drains an area of 129 square kilometres with approximately half of the catchment being rural. The remainder of the catchment consists of urban housing, general industry and commercial development. The lower reach of the creek also runs through a regionally significant section of urban parkland called the Darebin Parklands.

Darebin Creek Management Committee employee Rangers to maintain and manage this area which is very involved due to the history of the area. To find out more about the Darebin Parklands and its unique features, go to the Parklands section of this site.
