National Parks and Reserves

Just a short drive from the heart of the city is the Maribyrnong Valley Parklands featuring Brimbank Park and Horseshoe Bend Farm.

The parklands offer ideal settings for picnics, walks along the extensive network of trails, fishing, canoeing and bird watching, all set within peaceful parklands surrounded by prolific birdlife.

Watch for the many water birds and enjoy the scenic walking tracks or stop in at the cafe. Enjoy meeting the animals at Horseshoe Bend Farm. Walk along the Australian Plant Trail and experience the colour and beauty of plants suitable for growing in the Keilor area. Cycle along the wide paths. The main trail follows the river and forms a circuit of 4.3 kilometres. It links to the Maribyrnong River Trail, making it possible to walk or cycle from Keilor along the river as far as Footscray.

Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website.
