Abstract:

"It has been the Yarra's fate to be misunderstood: maligned for its muddiness, ill-used as a sewer and a tip; scooped, sculpted, straightened and stressed, 'cleaned up' to the detriment of its naural inhabitants; built-over, -under, and -beside; worked mercilessly and then bridged almost to maritime extinction ...
