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.
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.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Melbourne with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Melbourne. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
