Charting the Yarra

A review of 40 years of reports and plans for the Yarra river corridor.

This study reviews the urban planning reports that explicitly focus on the river corridor, its parklands, and its naturally vegetated banks. This study finds strikingly common themes in those reports and it provides an overview of the collective effectiveness of those reports.

The Yarra River— Melbourne’s greatest natural asset — suffers from fragmented management and from inconsistent planning. Our river is under intense and increasing pressure from population growth. The green and natural river corridor is squeezed and invaded. We need to give the river strong and coordinated management from the mountains to the bay.  – Andrew Kelly, Yarra Riverkeeper
