Grange Road, South Yarra Wetland

Our inner city wetland improves the water quality coming from the high end community of South Yarra and Toorak with their large manicured gardens and significant roof areas.

The local stormwater flows are diverted underneath Grange Road via Rocla’s innovative Hydro Brake pit which allows for a large diameter pipe but throttles back the amount of stormwater to a volume that the wetland can cope with it.  This enabled us to put the GPT on the more accessible side of such a busy inner city road.  And what lays beyond that now is a beautiful wildlife habitat and corridor linked along the banks of the Yarra.  To highlight the benefits of this natural wonderland, the City of Stonnington have developed a “The Life of the Yarra Audio Tour” which can be found here:

So give yourself a much needed break, and appreciate the wonderful inner city habitat corridor with a walk along our iconic Yarra River.
