Birrarung Park - Lower Templestowe



Situated at the confluence of the Plenty and Yarra Rivers, this 33 hectare park was an important meeting place for the Wurundjeri people. It's a significant recreation space within the parks along the Yarra River, incorporating two large ephemeral wetlands.

Several wood barbecues (wood is provided), picnic tables and shelters are available in the park. Fires are permitted only in the barbecues provided, and you are welcome to bring your own small gas barbecue. The toilet block at Birrarrung Park is wheelchair accessible. An adventure playground is available for children. There are 2.8 km of flat sealed trails are suitable for skating, cycling and walking.
My visit was on November 27, 2017, on a 1 km circuit around the dry lake.

Access is from the main entry off Templestowe Rd, just past the Heide Museum of Modern Art.
