RELAXATION IN YARRA BEND PARK

Yarra Bend Park has been one of Melbourne’s largest expanses of inner suburban parkland for nearly 150 years. Yarra Bend Park and neighbouring Studley Park were reserved in 1877. Both park areas and several reserves were combined in 1929 to create one large park. The combined area became known as Yarra Bend National Park despite never being raised to formal national park status.

When the weather is good (which is usually the case ≈250 days a year!) it is restful and relaxing to start the day with a walk in this urban oasis. It is wonderful to live within walking distance of this park and the stately Yarra River!

  3. Yarra Bend National Park looks like a delightful place to walk, especially since it is in the city's inner suburbs. But does it have a coffee shop to refresh the body and soul, after all that walking?
