Travel along Melbourne's twisting Yarra river in a glorious celebration of indigenous culture and Australia's unique flora and fauna.

Yarra Riverkeeper Andrew Kelly and Aboriginal Elder of the Wurundjeri people Aunty Joy Murphy join to tell the indigenous and geographical story of Melbourne's beautiful Yarra river - from its source to its mouth and from its pre-history to the present day. The writing dazzles with poetic descriptions of the trees, plants and wildlife that thrive in harmony along the iconic waterway, while lush and vibrant acrylic paintings from indigenous illustrator Lisa Kennedy make the mighty Yarra come to life - coursing under a starry sky, drawing people to its sunny shores, mirroring a searing orange sunset.

The end matter includes an author's note and a glossary of the Woiwurrung words used in the story.
