THE MERRI CREEK KID FAMILY

Meet the Merri Creek Kid Family

“The Merri Creek Kid family consists of myself, my partner (Ben) and our daughter, Zoe. We live in Preston, Victoria on the doorstep of a magical place, Merri Creek.

Why is Merri Creek so special to us?

In 2019 I was diagnosed with aggressive stage 3 breast cancer and following months of treatment I went on to have major surgery at the exact time as Melbourne’s COVID lock down. The Merri Creek quickly became our family’s saviour during this time, providing our daughter Zoe the space to have adventures, climb trees and pat as many dogs as she possibly could.

For me? Well, it brought me back to life… in the way that only a connection to nature can. Fast forward to the present day and we have now added a rescue dog to our family (also known as the Merri Creek Dog due to her love of the creek) and we still spend most of our weekends splashing around the creek and going on family adventures.”
