Stony Creek (Melbourne)

Stony Creek is located in the western suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It runs through the suburbs of St Albans, Albion, Sunshine, Braybrook, Tottenham, Brooklyn, Kingsville and Yarraville.

As of 2011 in its upper reaches Stony Creek's environmental state is very poor; it is best characterised as a concrete stormwater drain for these sections of its course. Through most of Sunshine it has been directed underground coming out at Hill Reserve. It then becomes a pleasantly treelined creek before passing through heavily industrialised areas.

Stony Creek joins the mangroves.

The creek has a friends group that works to restore native vegetation and protect the area.[1][2]
