Truganina Swamp (Altona)



Truganina Swamp covers an area of approximately 148 hectares and is mostly owned by Melbourne Water. Laverton Creek flows through the site to the Bay. Truganina Swamp provides
valuable habitat for fauna such as waterbirds and provides habitats for two vulnerable species, the Altona Skipper Butterfly which feeds on Chaffy Saw Sedge and the Orange-bellied Parrot which feeds on Beaded Glasswort and the scrubland species Glasswort. The wetland is an important habitat for many migratory wading birds and fishes and has a diverse range of indigenous vegetation communities.

There is a bird hide which can be accessed from the entrance to Truganina Swamp on Bell Avenue. A walking and cycling trail encircles the swamp and links to the Hobsons Bay Coastal Trail across Queen Street.
