The Dell in Clifton Springs is natural amphitheatre has a beautiful setting and offers spectacular views across Port Phillip Bay with the You Yangs and Melbourne’s high-rise skyline in the distance.
in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s the area was a popular spa destination with the springs offering crystal clear waters which were believed to have healing and medicinal benefits. The water was even once bottled and sold it is estimated some 5000 bottles were produced a year during the heyday and closed in 1915
The parkland at the base of the Dell is beautiful with protection from West, South and East, and the local council has put a lot of effort into revitalising and stabilising the area for all to enjoy.
Help to identify and remove invasive weeds, spread mulch to protect the native plants from the coming summer months, and maybe we will help put in a few more plants.
