The Western Treatment Plant sustainably treats half of Melbourne’s sewage, and is a thriving ecosystem with an internationally recognised bird habitat. Join us for a two hour bus tour at this place of historic, environmental and cultural significance.

The size of Phillip Island, this Western Treatment Plant treats sewage using a series of large ponds, called lagoons — the largest of which can hold 600 million litres! Find out about the important and innovative work they do to enhance Melbourne’s liveability.
