Yarra Bend Park is a picturesque native park near the heart of Melbourne. The park features steep river escarpments, open woodlands, playing fields and golf courses. Explore the park by foot or by bike, go boating on the river and enjoy superb views of the city skyline. Pleasant picnic areas, barbecues, rotundas and playgrounds make it popular with families. Meals, refreshments and boat hire are available at venues within the park. The 500 metre, 20-minute return, Bat Colony Nature Trail is a great way to see the remarkable colony of bats or Grey Headed Flying Foxes. At sunset, they put on a spectacular show as they all fly off to spend the night feeding on fruit and pollen. Or why not join a free Flying Fox Discovery Tour. The tours are free, fun and educational and offered until Christmas. Before you go - Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website. Be bushfire ready in the great outdoors. Refer to the Bushfire Safety section on the Parks Victoria website for tips on how to stay safe....
