CERES Community Environment Park

Corner of Roberts and Stewart Street, Brunswick East, Victoria, 3057

CERES Community Environment Park - situated on the banks of Merri Creek in East Brunswick - is one of Australia's most visited environmental education centres. CERES aims to help people fall in love with the Earth through a diverse range of community-based projects, activities and programs both locally and overseas.

What was once a wasteland and rubbish tip, is now an urban oasis that has evolved over 37 years; educating, celebrating and evolving as a community place of ecological sustainability, cultural diversity and social change.

Enjoy the native bush setting, with an organic farm, gardens, chickens, trails to follow and opportunities to learn more about global warming, water and energy conservation, waste minimisation, the ways of the Wurundjeri, and our energy future. A Zero Emissions EcoHouse is open to explore the first and third Saturday of every month. Local bands play every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and a flea market offers handmade and vintage wares every Saturday from 9:00am.

Relax and enjoy seasonal fare at The Merri Cafe, seek a variety of plants and expert advice from the gardening gurus in the Nursery and do your shopping at the CERES Organic Grocery, a hub of lively local food action.
