Merri Creek Management Committee

Darebin Parklands, in Alphington/Ivanhoe, has a natural bush and country feel that is unique given it is only 7km from the Melbourne CBD. There are hidden treasures within the park including original orchards and crops that were grown on the fringe of a growing city during the mid-1800s. A dairy farm, vineyard, quarry and tip site were all at times active industries within the bounds of the park, and clues of this can still be found if one knows where to look.
