Wattle Park, Melbourne

3.8
#24 of 49 in Parks in Melbourne
Take a long break at Wattle Park, noted for its plantation of 12,000 wattle trees. The park contains areas of indigenous remnant bushland, identified as regionally significant, and a high diversity of native fauna rarely found in other suburban habitats. At this location you can observe over 20 species of butterflies, at least 60 species of beetles, three species of frogs, bats, possums, and a huge variety of birds. Take advantage of the park’s two playgrounds, picnic areas, and barbecue facilities. As the terminus of tram route 70, the park retains its historic connection to the city’s tramways, and includes two old trams as popular shelters within its grounds. A small café, golf and tennis courts, and public toilets are also available. Arrange to visit Wattle Park and other attractions in Melbourne using our Melbourne driving holiday planner.

  • Plenty of space for the kids to run about and the playground was also big. A few extra picnic table would be useful.
  • Great scenery my dog and I think. Lovely nature reserve and playground with seating, excellent place to go on a Sunday arvo. There's nothing bad I have to say about this park besides from the poor colour choices on the play equipment but I am an entire or designer so I am very picky.
  • Beautiful park. Ample parking. BBQ facilities with great kids play area. Public toilet. Nearby golf course and a nice cafe.
  • Attractive, under-used open space in melb
  • Lovely park with plenty of walking tracks and facilities.

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
