Waterways, located in Melbourne's southern suburbs, was originally a housing development, and is now an official suburb just east of Mordialloc.

The lakes serve as a Melbourne Water filtration system for fresh water flowing down from Dandenong and Moridalloc Creeks then into Port Phillip Bay.

It is Australia's only suburb that's 20% parkland and 40% water. Over 46 hectares of wildlife sanctuary were artificially created in and around the swampy marshlands of Moridalloc Creek. (Source: Wiki)
