SUNRISE AT THE PARKLANDS

Melbourne's parks offer a wonderful range of opportunities to make the most of one's leisure time. With a network of nearly 480 hectares of internationally acclaimed parks and gardens, there is something to suit everyone's lifestyle. Ranging from gardens with classic 19th century heritage features and majestic tree avenues, to the 170-hectare Royal Park with its unique bushland landscape and wetlands habitat, Melbourne offers a variety of open spaces and recreation opportunities.

Here are some photos from the Darebin Parklands at sunrise.

and also part of the Weekend Reflections meme.
