Maribyrnong River


The Maribyrnong River, which begins on the slopes of Mount Macedon and flows to Port Phillip, has played a major role in the occupation and development of western Victoria. Aboriginal tribes have frequented its banks for at least 40,000 years. The river has been part of the rapid developments that have occurred in the last 50 years. The river was known as Saltwater River before its present name came into common usage.

- These waters provide good canoeing and three ponding points have been designed to enable children and adults to discover the delights of catching fish with a hand net
- The park has barbecues, picnic tables and shelters, and a shared cycle/walking path starts in the park and continues on to Footscray
- Parklands on either side of the river include Maribyrnong Park and Fairbairn Park where there are boat landings and picnic facilities
- Just downstream from Dynon Road Bridge it is possible to board a pleasure boat for a leisurely trip up the river. From here on the river passes through the industrial area of Footscray with its historic jetties and bridges before it joins the Yarra at Fishermans Bend
- Fishing is popular from jetties and fishing platforms alongside parks and reserves on either side of the river.
- Bicycle tracks follow its banks, crossing the river via pedestrian bridges at several points. Many people use these trails to get to Brimbank Park or Pipemakers Park
