Overview
More
As one of the major recreation areas situated on the Yarra River, Banksia Park covers 23 hectares of gently undulating open space. Like most of the Lower Yarra area, Banksia Park is classified as 'Riparian Floodplain Woodland' featuring River Red Gum and wetlands. The open space, playgrounds and picnic areas of Banksia Park make it a popular location with visitors of all ages. The park is perfect for cyclists, joggers, walkers and those who enjoy a breath of fresh air. Several wood barbecues, picnic tables and one picnic shelter are available in the park and the toilet block is wheel chair accessible. There are 3 kilometres of sealed trails in the park and a 'Dog Friendly Park' off-leash enclosure is situated next to the Japanese Cherry Tree Grove. Pedestrian and cyclist access is available at all times. Vehicle entry is available from Templestowe Road, Bulleen. Carpark gates are open 6am to 6pm, extending to 9pm during daylight savings.

This is a big expanse of green parkland beside the river, so be prepared for fresh air and walking once you're off the horribly busy roads running through the north-eastern suburbs. You could combine some time in the park with a visit to the Heide...More

What a beautiful park hidden away from the surrounding busy streets! The fenced in off-lead dog area is a great size and space for your dog to enjoy. Our dog loved exploring the area and meeting other dogs. Drinking water is available for dogs when...More

Regular visits for our two dogs means they meet new dogs, play and run, and come home exhausted! Always another dog or two there means you also get to have a chat while you walk! Stunning location by the river especially as the mist rises...More

This park is huge! Various places where you can park your car & be by yourself. Also features a great dog park. Also a great place to park your car and have a picnic when you check out the Art gallery

The park is large and open with plenty of space to walk. The highlight is the fenced, off lead dog area which our Springer Spaniel adored. On the down side, because there are no bins in this privately owned park dog walkers tend to leave...More

The great thing about Melbourne is the cycle paths. You can ride here and follow the Yarra river all the way to the city Beautiful Aussie park

Banksia Park is really beautiful, with nice trees and a serene river flows through. Sitting idly on the river bank watching the sun going down is really a nice choice for a sunny weekend.

While Banksia Park is quite close to main roads, it follows the meandering Yarra River and hence can feel quite secluded. On a pleasant early summer day I saw noisy miners, rainbow lorikeets and magpies - nothing out of the usual - but the 'maggies'...More
