CERES Community Environment Park

Corner of Robert 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 creates change towards sustainability 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 30 years; educating, celebrating and evolving as a community place of ecological sustainability, cultural diversity and social change.

CERES is home to a rich and diverse range of groups, activities and recreational opportunities which are fun, educational and inspirational.

CERES is situated in a native bush setting, with an organic farm, permaculture gardens, trails to follow and opportunities to learn more about global warming, water and energy conservation, waste minimisation, the ways of the Wurundjeri, and the future of our society. A renewable Energy Park and Eco-house are yours to explore.

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