The Parklands of the Yarra Valley

 
 
I am pleased to advise that my new, free, on-line Pictorial Heritage Research Project, "The Parklands of the Yarra Valley – a Journey of Discovery" is now available.
 
Containing 32 chapters, It describes the history and evolution of the Yarra River Parklands,  extending from Ivanhoe to Warrandyte, a distance of some 17 km.
 
It's a step-on, step-off journey of discovery through time and space. Like the Parklands themselves,  readers and travellers may stop and appreciate these magnificent reserves, views, scenes and waterways!
 
Yarra Valley Parklands are one of the most significant expanses of public open space in metropolitan Melbourne, covering 1700 hectares. They are characterised by a diverse array of landscapes including pockets of Australian bushland, open paddocks and floodplains, aboriginal sites, an old apple orchard and remnants from early white settlement linked by the iconic Yarra River.  The landscapes provide for a wide range of recreational pursuits and contain significant natural and cultural values. The parklands are vital in contributing to the health and well-being of the community and the character of the local and regional landscape
 
Each Park is listed alphabetically and includes a scalable Map, a description, historical notes, places of interest, directions, walking tracks, heritage and contemporary static and slideshow images, audio and video features.  A comprehensive Bibliography is also included.
 
There are over 200 images in the Project!
