Video: The greatest backyard in Melbourne

We share the greatest backyard in Melbourne.  Our iconic rivers and creeks are the lifeblood of Melbourne's natural landscape. They're what  makes living here great.

They provide us with spaces to be active, to connect with family and friends; or to enjoy some quiet time in nature.  

At Melbourne Water, we care for our beautiful rivers and creeks as well as the surrounding open spaces. The work we do today ensures they remain healthy and clean into the future.  

But Melbourne's population is rapidly growing and  that means more litter is reaching our waterways every day. We all have a role to play to keep  our rivers and creeks beautiful.

Litter is everyone's responsibility. Let's keep them clean  today, so that we can all enjoy them tomorrow.
