About the tour

The Merri Creek flows about 60 km from Australia's Great Dividing Range through Melbourne’s northern suburbs to the Yarra River. I live just where it falls into the river. My city is in lockdown at the moment and my only escape from staring at four walls is to walk along the banks of the creek to the beautiful wetlands, resting my eyes on the greenery and the flowing water. This area was traditionally the location for large gatherings of the Wurundjeri people and is the location for one of the earliest land treaties in Australia between Indigenous Australians and European settlers. Come and join me at this peaceful haven and I'll tell you some stories, with respect, from the Aboriginal Dreamtime.


Meet Susanna

Susanna

Susanna is an avid reader of historical detective novels, a radio producer, civil celebrant, over-worked grandmother and, for fun, she reconstructs Ancient Roman recipes. For over 30 years she taught adults, particularly women, in the technical aspects of radio broadcasting and film production, or how to get out there and just do it. She's also been a social worker, a consulting psychologist, stage actor and barmaid. Susanna is a proud descendant of 19th century convicts, republicans and revolutionaries and still wants to be a time-traveller.

Very good, including the Aboriginal animal lore. Also nostalgic; I used to live near there and walked & cycled around the Creek. (I tried to leave a tip but was foiled by electronic malfunction - sorry!)

There is something to be said about a peaceful walk thorugh a local park. Especially for those who can't get out because of the pandemic or those of us who brave the triple digit heat of the desert. Susanna delivered a nice walk near a creek sharing stories of the aborigines. It's a quiet time like this that is needed now more than ever.

It was lovely to see the countryside and hear the birds.
