Completed in 1857, the Yan Yean Water Supply system remains one of the oldest functioning water systems in Australia.

An engineering marvel, it is a rare example of an early continually-operating, water system augmenting the natural water course of the Plenty River and servicing as a repository of drinking water for Melbourne.

Join us on a tour to learn about its historical and cultural significance and future challenges in managing the heritage values of this early water supply.

Lunch, morning and afternoon tea are included.

Cost: $30 per person. Bookings essential.     

Presented by Melbourne Water, supported by Parks Victoria and the City of Whittlesea.
