Ludmilla Creek extends through much of urban Darwin, before it flows through the floodplains and mangroves of Ludmilla into Darwin Harbour. Much of the creek has been heavily impacted by urban development of the years, even attracting the name 'Ludmilla Drain'. The group have been working to restore this important waterway and habitat corridor for future generations of Darwinites.
