The Studley Park Boathouse, originally established as the Burn's Boathouse, has been in continuous use since 1863. It is located in Yarra Bend Park, about 10 minutes drive from the Melbourne City centre. This park is the largest area of natural bushland within the Melbourne Metropolitan area. The park's popularity waned mid-century as motor cars expanded leisure choices. Since the early 1980s revegetation and the construction of the Main Yarra Trail have led to a resurgence of popularity.

If not for the red roof, it would be nearly hidden in the trees.ReplyDelete
There was a boathouse at a lake near where I used to live, and for reasons unknown, someone took it upon themselves to set it on fire. I never did learn whether it was done to collect insurance or such, or a random act of violence.
The boathouse is beautiful. I was in Melbourne a couple years ago and loved it!ReplyDelete
