In 2019, Melbourne Design Week is celebrating the city's closest thing it has to an iconic feature with a program of tours, talks and exhibitions centred around our relationship with the Birrarung — that is, the Yarra River. Take a bike ride along the river banks, explore the Wonthaggi desalination plant, or take a boat tour of the river's most beloved swimming spots. Yes, people actually used to swim in the Yarra.

Other events on the Waterfronts program include Undercurrent, a solo exhibition by Bangerang artist Peta Clancy featuring a series of sobering photographic works created in collaboration with the Dja Dja Wurrung community that highlight hidden massacre sights along the Yarra's banks, as well as Commuter Afloat, a talk on the benefits of water-based transit held right on the water.

For the full Waterfronts program, go here. Events are booking out fast, so make sure you get in quick.
