Yarra Flats Park features 85 hectares of pastoral and heritage landscapes, natural bushland, wetlands, abundant birdlife and a number of informal picnic areas. There is a wood barbecue, picnic tables and shelters located near the car park.  Along the Main Yarra Trail is the Heidelberg School Artists Trail, which illustrates how artists a century ago (such as Condor, McCubbin and Streeton) interpreted the landscape.

Pedestrian and cyclist access is available from various points in the park at all times. Vehicle entry is available from The Boulevard, East Ivanhoe (Melway 32 B6).
Car park gates are open 6am to 6pm, extending to 9pm during daylight savings.
Dogs are permitted in the park but must remain on a leash at all times. Dogs are not permitted within the (fenced) Annulus Billabong Wildlife Sanctuary.

  1. A beautiful place to spend free-time!

  2. Looks like a scenic area for cycling, walking or just sitting back and drinking in the view. Gorgeous tree trunk textures in the first photo.

  3. Looks so inviting. Wish we had such safe biking trails: we have to take pot luck with the traffic. Doesn't make for peaceful riding.


I love to hear from you, so please comment. I appreciate constructive criticism as it improves my skills as an amateur photographer.
