Darebin Parklands is a natural bushland reserve only 7 km away from the Melbourne CBD. The main entry is via Separation street from Fairfield and visitors are greeted with a modest BBQ area. Spreading out from this are large lawns, ponds, hills and if you follow one of the many walking trails, within minutes you are in bushland and have lost sight of civilisation. There is a lookout that has amazing views back onto the city and a walking track that follows the course of the Darebin Creek. It is the Creek that enlivens the Parklands and gives many a beautiful view along its length.
