Welcome to Riddells Creek

Beautiful 'Barrm Birrm' rises out of the
flat Volcanic Plains in the foreground

Riddells Creek is 50km NW of Melbourne, where the flat basalt plains meet the foothills & forest of the Macedon Range. Grassland, heathy dry forest, riparian woodland and herb-rich foothill forest give rise to amazing flora & fauna biodiversity and magnificent wildflower displays. It is our goal to conserve and improve our area for this and future generations.
