Murrk Ngubitj Yarram Yaluk (former Bellarine Basin)

We’re embarking on a project to transform our former Bellarine Basin site into more than 30 hectares of environmental and public open space to be enjoyed by the community for years to come.

The Bellarine Basin, located on the corner of Grubb and Swan Bay Roads, Wallington, is no longer being used for operational purposes. This presents an exciting opportunity to work with Wadawurrung Traditional Owners, the local community and key stakeholders to reimagine this space.

The environmental and community place planned for the former Bellarine Basin at the corner of Grubb and Swan Bay roads has a new name, Murrk Ngubitj Yarram Yaluk, meaning ‘headwaters of continuous flowing river’ in Wadawurrung language.

We have received $650,000 funding under the Victorian Government’s Distinctive Areas and Landscapes program and will contribute the same amount to the $1.3-million project to begin remediating and revegetating the site.

We want to transform the disused basin site into an area that enhances the unique and natural features of the Bellarine Peninsula, so that it becomes a place people, birds and native animals can enjoy for generations to come.
