Ruffey Creek Linear Park, Templestowe




The Ruffey Creek Linear Park is located in Lower Templestowe, about 30 km NE of Melbourne town. It includes the 14 hectare Finn's Reserve, with about 1.2 km of Yarra River frontage, surrounding Wombat Bend.

Facilities include a Scout Hall, playground, fitness equipment, barbeques, shelter, public toilets and landscaping.


It is reached from Union St, off Foote St. The Ruffey Creek confluence with the Yarra divides the Reserve.

A suspension footbridge crosses the Yarra, linking with the Main Yarra Trail.

I visited this nice park on Saturday afternoon March 13, 2010, crossing the suspension bridge, then continuing east to Westerfold's Park, and return, about 4 km total.

Platypuses are in the Yarra at Finn's Reserve, but were not seen!


A long Trail goes through the Ruffey Creek Valley to Ruffey Lake Park.


Many ducks live in the river, which on this occasion was very turgid and brown, due to recent storms upstream.
