Sustained community action saved the Mullum Mullum Valley from a freeway going through the heart of this important stretch of bushland in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
The Mullum Mullum Festival celebrates and showcases the beauty and importance of our native Australian bushland, highlights the importance of environmental protection and demonstrates what it will take to retain a habitable planet for us and for future generations.
The Festival starts on Saturday 14 November with a look at the night skies through telescopes, and activities continue on 15, 21 and 22 November at various sites and times along the Mullum Mullum Creek valley.
The opening day, 15 November, starts with a guided walk about Indigenous connections to land, and is centred around Aboriginal culture. It is full of entertainment, music, food and traditional craft workshops suitable for both adults and children.
This is followed on 22 and 23 November by and exciting selection of over twenty expert-lead walks and presentations on various aspects of the environment.
If you are interested in learning about priorities for climate action, native vegetation, evaluating bush health through bush sounds, native wildlife, alternatives to burning the bush or many other features of our natural environment from experts in their fields, there will be something for you in the 17th Mullum Mullum Festival.
