Fawkner Park

Melbourne’s lush Fawkner Park welcomes visitors of all ages to explore its 41 acres of lush parkland. This verdant park was opened to the public back in 1862, and on the day of its inauguration, this beautiful park was named after one of the most notable citizens of Melbourne – John Pascoe Fawkner.

Even after so many years, the park is still in its original condition with many designs still unchanged.
