The Nillumbik shire is offering the opportunity to get involved in the creation of an interpretive trail. Free field days on indigenous culture, European heritage and biodiversity will help inspire you to create your own interpretive art. This is your chance to explore the many aspects of bush land reserves with other like-minded people.

July

Heritage Walk
