Trin Warren Tam-boore (Bellbird waterhole) is an urban wetland located in the north-west of Royal Park. It’s designed to treat stormwater run-off from surrounding suburbs, provide habitat for wildlife and deliver recycled water for use in parks.
The wetland consists of two linked ponds over five hectares of land. The ‘treatment wetland’ acts as a natural filter, where Australian native plants treat and clean stormwater through natural biological processes. The processed clean water then goes to the ‘storage wetland’ which is used to irrigate areas of Royal Park, while the remainder flows through to Port Phillip Bay.
