Friends of the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne present Spring Fit Friends' Ramble, Birrarung Marr - Guided tour by expert.

Birrarung Marr, on the Yarra River’s north bank next to Federation Square, is Melbourne’s newest major park. From Princes Bridge, the park incorporates three terraces of contrasting plantings, grass, sand and installations that celebrate the diversity of Victoria’s Indigenous culture.

The public artworks reflect and interpret Koori stories. We will proceed together to the Koori Heritage Centre to be met by an expert guide who will introduce us to Koori culture. Such guides have special insight and understanding that can enrich our appreciation of the culture. We will hear about the significance of the river as we walk through the garden areas, and learn about William Barak. As we wander along, the stories, flora and fauna as represented in the park will be revealed.

After the tour, we will have coffee at our own expense and explore interesting spots in the vicinity.

Meet under the clocks at Flinders Street Station at 9:45am.
Coffee at our own expense.
