Mid-week Outing

This Mid-week outing will be to view and inspect the Fruit Bats that live along the banks of the Yarra in Kew.

The bats can be seen from the Bellbird Picnic Area located at Melways reference 44K4 and 45A4 .

When visiting the area I have accessed the area by driving down Molesworth St Kew and turning right onto Yarra Bvld. The picnic area is a short distance further on and is a left hand turn off Yarra Bvld. Follow the road down to the car park.

A toilet block, picnic shelter and BBQ are located a short distance from the car park. I thought we could use these facilities to have a morning tea before inspecting the bat colony and then a picnic lunch.

Bring along a thermos for your hot beverages, and a sandwich or other food for lunch, as well as cooking implements if you plan on using the barbecue.

For those not wanting to have a picnic lunch, the Studley Park Boathouse is close by and offers a variety of eating opportunities.
