Colouring competition

Did you know there are at least 15 species of dragonflies and damselflies in the city’s ponds and creeks? Or that beetles are the most common type of insect living in the City of Melbourne?

In collaboration with RMIT, we have released a children’s book – The Little Things That Run The City – that explores how insects are critical to our city’s biodiversity, and what we can do to help them survive and thrive.

For your chance to win one of five copies of the book, download our free colouring in pages [PDF 1.3MB].

Choose your favourite page, colour it in and email it with your name, age and contact details to melbournemag@melbourne.vic.gov.au by 28 February 2018.

You can also share your artwork on Instagram and tag in @cityofmelbourne
