Starting from Toorak Road, South Yarra, this walk gives you a compact tour of Fawkner Park via the Fawkner Park Inner Circuit Track. Fawkner Park is a beautiful green space in the heart of Melbourne's South Yarra neighbourhood. The park has well-maintained grass and trees, walking paths, and sporting fields, making it an excellent place for a leisurely walk, jog or even a game of soccer. There is also a dog off-leash area, public restrooms, a playground, BBQs, many seats and heaps of shade. There are soccer fields, and you might even stumble upon a Quidditch match on Sundays. Additionally, the park is home to many chirping birds, adding to the peaceful ambience of the place. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
