A favourite picnic spot in the Yarra Valley is Badger Weir Picnic Grounds, located at the end of Badger Weir Road, off Don Road in Healesville/Badger Creek, 7km from Healesville township and only a few moments from the popular Healesville Sanctuary.
Old-style shingle roof rotundas, landscaped grounds and barbeques, surrounded by the beautiful Mountain Ash trees of the Yarra Ranges National Park, this is the perfect spot to picnic with family and friends, whilst watching the local resident birdlife including the Australian King Parrot, Crimson Rosella and the Superb Lyrebird. The weir itself was constructed in 1909 and is a water catchment area for Melbourne. Enjoy a short walk around the Badger Weir:
