The annual Mullum Mullum Festival celebrates the ecological and cultural values of Mullum Mullum Creek Valley.
The catchment of the Mullum Mullum Creek in the municipalities of Maroondah, Whitehorse and Manningham is home to more than 60,000 people, but it also encompasses some of the largest and best preserved areas of remnant bush in urban Melbourne. This bush contains more than 300 species of indigenous flowering plants and more than 120 species of indigenous birds, as well as many mammals and reptiles, and countless insects.
The Festival was inaugurated in 1995 by concerned individuals in the local community who opposed the Eastern Freeway extension through the valley and who wanted to play an active role in promoting the natural values of the local area. During the Festival you will have the opportunity to learn about the biodiversity of the Mullum Mullum Valley, as well as the cultural heritage of the area.
The walks organised for this Festival cover a wide range of aspects of the valley; there is always something new to see.
The Mullum Mullum Valley supports valuable habitat for a range of indigenous flora and fauna and forms an important connection, linking the foothill forests of Maroondah to the Yarra river in Templestowe. The continued preservation and enhancement of this corridor is vital for the survival of the plants and animals that depend on it, and for ensuring that future generations retain an environment to enjoy. We hope that you will come away from the Mullum Mullum Festivals with greater understanding and knowledge of this beautiful native bushland and the flora and fauna within.
The 2013 festival will be on 20, 21 (opening day) 27 and 28 April.
