Darebin Parklands, in Fairfield and Ivanhoe, 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.

There are changing moods at different times of the day and one can see the changing seasons reflected in the vegetation. Whatever the time and whatever the season, it's always beautiful there...

  2. Beautiful photos and beautiful park. So nice that you give some history, too.

  3. Reminds me of that saying, "red sky in the morning, sailor take warning." They are beautiful shots.

  4. The sky has been generous with its colour lately Nick.
