Information

Malcolm Creek at Craigieburn is situated approximately 25 kilometres north of Melbourne within the Western Volcanic Plains. The lower reach of the creekline bisects the 3000-household Delfin Craigieburn residential development. The creek corridor incorporates approximately 160 hectares of open space and more than 4.8 kilometres of natural creek line. The site has been progressively conserved, rehabilitated and developed throughout the life of the project.

The conservation and enhancement of the ecological values of the site was driven by a coordinated approach to the planning, rehabilitation and management of the landscape. An early assessment of the ecological values of the site was instrumental in the planning and management of the site. A thorough understanding of the ecological attributes of the site also influenced the design and layout of the adjoining residential development, aided in prioritising and planning of land management works and assisted in the planning for water quality initiatives and open-space activities.
