Candlebark Park








Candlebark Park is a large area of preserved land, about 2 km by 2 km, formerly orchards and farms, named after a stand of magnificent Candlebark trees, Eucalyptius Rubida, which line the ridge at the south end of the Park.

The Park is adjacent to Westerfold's Park, 15 km NE of Melbourne CBD, and is next to the Yarra River.

It is at the boundary of the Yarra Valley Parklands, and the Main Yarra Trail passes through it.
At the eastern end, the Trail continues past the extensive Petty's Antique Apple Orchard, a commercial/demonstration working orchard, one of the few surviving orchards of the 1950s.

There is a network of walking and cycling tracks in the Park, with resident mobs of Eastern Grey Kangaroos.

Some of these tracks are the remains of the former dirt roads which existed before the region was subdivided for housing in the 1960s.

Dogs are not allowed in the Park.

The pictures were taken on March 20, 2007.
