North Melbourne Water Spirit

A triangle of land; the island between Errol, Harcourt, Courtney and Harris streets in what seems like the lowest point of North Melbourne. Next to an electricity substation is a grate; always there is the sound of running water. By the bus stop there are three Moreton Bay Fig trees, giving the whole the feel of a billabong. If there is a water spirit in North Melbourne it would live here, and would be a little cranky.
