DUCKS AT THE PARKLANDS

Darebin Parklands comprises an area of approximately 40 hectares of urban bushland straddling the Darebin Creek. The park is located 8 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD, between the suburbs of Ivanhoe and Alphington. The park is highly accessible being both on a bus route and adjacent to the Hurstbridge railway line.

There are many water features int eh Parklands, including the meandering Darebin Creek and many ponds and artificial lakes. Bird life abounds in the waterways.
