“I swam in the Yarra for the first time this year! It was so glorious I had to swim multiple times a day. It’s my dream that we could swim in more sections of the Yarra, and that one day I can tell my grandchildren the wild fairy tale that once the Yarra was so unprotected that you couldn’t swim in it!”
