Still Glides the Stream: The Natural History of the Yarra from Heidelberg to Yarra Bend

By Geoff Lacey

This book takes us on an exploration of the Yarra – a remarkable landscape of meanders, rich wetlands and steep escarpments. Site by site, we examine the pre-European vegetation, the Aboriginal presence, and the changes to the river and its flora and fauna since the 1830s. We consider the words of settlers and naturalists, the view of the Heidelberg artists, and the achievement of community groups in restoring much of this environment.

'Still glides the stream provides a fascinating account of the history, natural history, and geology of our local section of the Yarra river.'
— Dianne Williamson
