Ruffey Lake Park - Doncaster

A visit to Ruffey Lake Park.

Ruffey Lake Park is a large (69 hectares) area of protected land in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Doncaster, 20 km from the city.

Parts of the Park are original bushland - other sections are the results of extensive revegitation efforts.

The site is of important historical significance to the descendants of the original Aboriginal people who occupied the land prior to the appearance of European settlers in the 1800s.

It was formerly an orchard, and offers walking tracks, cycling paths, lakes, bridges, foot-tracks, the Heritage Trail, lookouts, historical features, and playgrounds.

It is situated in the Ruffey Creek Valley.

I visited the Park on April 11, 2007, exploring about 4 km of the walking tracks.
