The Darebin Parklands has a natural bush and country feel that is unique given it is only 7km from the Melbourne CBD. There are hidden treasures within the park including remnant orchards and crops that were grown on the fringe of a growing city during the mid-1800s. A dairy farm, vineyard, quarry and tip site were all at times active industries within the bounds of the park, and clues of this can still be found if one knows where to look. BUt first and foremost are the creek, the waterholes, the lakes and other water features!

  1. How nice and pretty your pictures. I sure would like to see that weather.

    Also not have to wear coates and walk around like this.

    Snow is going to come this afternoon. Boooo

  2. A place one would love to remain for ever and ever and ever ...

    Thank you. Please have a good Thursday ahead.

  3. Very beautiful place for a walk!
    At first I thought the rocks in the second photo were ducks - they seem to float on the water!
