Yalukit Willam’s Wildflower Meadow progress in full flight

Drone footage of the works in action🎥

In collaboration with Melbourne University’s School of Design and School of Ecosystem Sciences, we're designing and planting the grassy wildflower meadows adjacent to the Community Edge precinct at Yalukit Willam Nature Reserve.

The Wildflower Meadow incorporates more than 18 wildflower and 20 indigenous grassland species. The design concept creates a network of meandering paths, welcoming visitors to explore and discover the unique attributes of the various species. Seasonal changes will contrast the colours of the wildflower community, and visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the importance and connection of grasslands with biodiversity.
