Monday 25 February, 2013 |
Yarra Valley Parklands extend along the Yarra River and provide visitors with a wide range of recreational opportunities, from picnicking to canoeing and even camping.
The parks include Westerfolds, Banksia, Birrarrung and Candlebark parks, Yarra Flats, Sweeneys Flat and Longridge Park Camp.
The parklands form a significant 'backbone' of interconnecting trails, linear parks, wetlands and waterways throughout the metropolitan area. The ongoing effort revegetating the parklands, mostly with the aid of valued community groups planting about 30,000 trees per year, has seen the return of a number of significant wildlife species.
