Birrarung Wilam

A sacred journey.

When the sun rises and the eagles soar over the mountains, Birrarung starts her journey through a winding path. First, she flows through the homes of those nocturnals returning home for a rest. Then those insects and birds that are preparing to start their day. Further, she rushes through the farmlands where the Kangaroo cubs are watching her from their mommies' pouches. Finally, by sunset, she reaches the city.



We picked this book based on a recommendation. This is a must-read book for every child, especially while discussing the reasons for protecting our water bodies. In addition, the illustrations are enchanting and praiseworthy. The book describes the journey of the river using aboriginal Australian terms.



Birrarung Wilam by Aunty Joy Murphy & Andrew Kelly is a must-read book on the Birrarung with frame-worthy illustrations.
