Darebin Parklands is a conservation park sited along the Darebin Creek. Darebin Parklands is a wonderful setting for walks and escaping into the natural environment, and is located only 5km from Melbourne's CBD. The park has a full time Ranger coordinating the Education Centre which details the parks rich history and commitment to conservation and environmental sustainability.
The Darebin Creek Trail runs through the centre of the park and provides shared trail access through to Bundoora Park 10km to the north. Features of the park include natural rock faces, wetlands, historical olive trees, Spiritual Healing Trail, large areas of natural environment and much more. Tours can be organised by contacting the Education Centre.
The area was once home to a dairy farm, vineyard and quarry. There are many areas to explore and numerous options for walkers, cyclists and picnickers. Recreational activities include bike riding, dog walking off-lead (except 2m either side of the shared path). Toilets, picnic tables and barbecue facilities are provided.
