YARRA BEND PARK

At Yarra Bend Park, the largest area of natural vegetation near the city of Melbourne, the landscape varies from steep, wild river escarpments to open woodlands, formal parkland, playing fields and golf courses. It has over 16km of river frontage, and superb views of the city and the Dandenongs from the higher areas.

Yarra Bend Park is located in inner Melbourne beside the suburbs of Kew and Fairfield. The Park can be accessed via car from the Yarra Boulevard, Kew or Yarra Bend Road, Fairfield. Buses provide access via Studley Park Road, Kew and Heidelberg Road, Fairfield.

    1. The trees are Eucalyptus, or "gum trees" as we call them here in Australia.

  4. Gee we are lucky to have such beauty in the inner suburbs. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why Melbourne topped the "Most Livable City in the World" list again.
