Trin Warren Tam-boore

Trin Warren Tam-boore (Bellbird Waterhole) is a wetland located at the northwest corner of Royal Park and part of the Moonee Ponds Creek catchment.

The Wetland has been designed to treat water from the surrounding area through natural biological processes (see diagram below). It provides water for irrigation systems in the Park, including the Golf Course and sports ovals.

The wetland has a variety of water plants that provide food and shelter for many different types of fauna and the ponds are very popular with bird watchers. It is one of the sites where the Friends of Royal Park do their bird surveys.

The Wetlands and surrounds are a Dogs Prohibited area.


The Billabong is a small waterbody in a southern corner of the Park, near Flemington Road and Elliott Avenue. It was formed as a landscape feature designed by Brian Stafford and Gordon Ford in 1989 and upgraded in 2018.

The Billabong is a Dogs Prohibited area.

Australian Native Garden Pond

The Australian Native Garden was designed by landscape architect Grace Fraser in the 1970s and included the pond as a key feature. The pond is fed by stormwater via a small swale and is fringed with riparian plant species. Although shallow it supports families of ducks, amongst other birds.

The ANG is a Dogs Prohibited area.
