About the project

The Mullum Creek estate is located along the western bank of the Mullum Mullum Creek in Donvale, approximately 20 km from the city of Melbourne. The land was formerly comprised of orchard, farm and remnant bush. It has been owned by the Mathews family since 1958 and is now the site of an environmentally sensitive residential development. Homesites are confined to previously cleared land, and the creek frontage and remnant bushland (approximately 45% of the original property) have been donated to Manningham City Council for inclusion in the the local reserve system. The Mullum Mullum Linear Park and Bike Trail now extends through the property alongside the creek, and the bush continues to provide habitat for a wide variety of indigenous animals and plants.
