Last weekend, we took our dog to Brimbank Park – surely one of Melbourne’s secret fabulous places. From the park entrance, it looks almost industrial, but wind your way down the entry road and you’re in a riverside oasis. You could be in the country in another time rather than contemporary outer suburbia.
There are clues though. This farming house boasts a TV antenna. And if you peer through the trees, there are double storey houses perched on the steep bank on the far side of the river.
