  • Studley Annex, the urban gateway to Yarra Bend Park, bordered by Studley Park and the Kew Boulevard, neighbouring Caritas Christi Hospice, offers the many walkers city-edge views of the inner suburban Yarra Valley overlooking Yarra Bend golf course. It has two main paths leading down to the river via the Boulevard: one on a bitumen track the other, a bush track through a wooded environment. Sadly this once splendid park is now in appalling condition, severely neglected by Parks Victoria. The grassed area abutting Caritas is a morgue of large dead Pittosternum trees which once offered dense shade to local picners; the thinning canopy and many dead and fallen trees on the bush track are a further symptom of the poor condition of this environment. On the bush track closer to the Boulevard there is an unkept undergrowth and tangle of dead wood and fallen trees, the end product of an poor attempt at controlled burning some years back. Multiple young saplings that have been felled and left on a lesser track making it very difficult for walkers. With a few resources and a bit of TLC by Parks Victoria, this once delightful park could be restored to its former glory.
  • This place is highly recommended for a unique experience course to this amazing flying fixes (fruit bats) colony. You can see some of then fly even during day time and the noise is just incredible. Unforgettable atmosphere. I'll definitely come back before dusk to see them take off by hundreds!
  • So close to the city that there's no excuse for a weekend picnic or bike ride or a leisure walk. Definitely a great family park!
  • Such a beautiful part of Melbourne and so close! Make sure you set aside a few hours and explore the whole area.
  • Go for a walk in yarra bend park. It's nice down by the river, where you can also sit at the boathouse with a cuppa.
