Birrarrung Park - Lower Templestowe

Birrarrung Park is a large preserved area of land along the Yarra River, in the outer eastern suburb of Lower Templestowe, 20 km east of Melbourne.

The name Birrarrung Park was derived from an Aboriginal word for Yarra River. Stone chips, flakes and an axe head found in the park remind us that the area was part of an Aboriginal pathway.

Residential and industrial development did not occur in the river valley, mainly because of the threat of flooding. The predominant land use was small scale cattle grazing and horse agistment.

The park has been developed since 1979 and was opened to the public in 1984.

A beautiful lake, with ducks, is the dominant feature of the Park, and shared walking trails pass around the lake and alongside the Yarra.

My pictures were taken on December 4, 2012, on a 3 km hike around the Park.
