Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek
Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek was formed in 2001 and held its first planting on 3rd June that year with 201 volunteers attending. Over the past 14 years, thousands more volunteers from diverse cultural backgrounds and industrial organisations have joined FOLKC in planting over 50,000 trees, shrubs and under-story plants along the creek within Hobsons Bay.
Kororoit Creek winds its way from its headwaters at Moint Aitken, Deverall Hill and Beattie Hill to enter Port Philip Bay at Altona 81 kilometres downstream. The area has been transformed from an unkempt and hazardous drainage reserve to a remarkable walking track.
