Yarra Bend Park - Studley Park

This area has been appreciated by Victorians for a long period of time. The area of the Yarra River a short way downstream was an important meeting site for the Wurrundjeri people, with good hunting and fishing.  In 1863 the boat house was established and is now the oldest operating boathouse in Victoria.  Around this walk you will see original native bushland and maybe some local lorikeets, parrots and cockatoos.
