Come with us on a tour of some of inner Melbourne's green facades, roofs and walls, and learn about the landscape and history of our city.
We will be visiting 4 -6 unique green sites across inner Melbourne beginning with:
* 350 William St green facades
* EPA Victoria green wall (200 Victoria St)
* Paddy Pallin green wall (360 Little Bourke St)
* GPO green wall (Postal Lane)
* Council House 2 green roof (218 Little Collins St)
* Podium walls (35 Collins St)
This west facing facade extends 12 metres above the street level and hosts a combination of climbing vines and decorative grasses.
The resting place of unnamed pioneers who occupied Melbourne's first cemetery
Completed in 2012 this south facing 76m2 green wall is speckled with flowering species and hosts 15 species of bromeliads, ferns and ground-covers.
External green wall experiencing some vegetation damage
This green wall uses a felt pocket system to house shade-tolerant plants, many of which are used commonly indoors.
Built in 2005, this became the first purpose-built office building in Australia to achieve a maximum six green star rating, and is the headquarters of the City of Melbourne.
Completed in February 2015, the Collins Place food court includes 8 totem-style green poles ranging from 3 to 5 metres in height.
