Studley Park: Boathouse

The Burn family established “Riversdale” in 1863, the first of many boathouses on the Yarra River in Melbourne.  Now known as the Studley Park Boathouse, it is significant for its continuity of use as a public boathouse since its establishment. It is the oldest public boat house on the Yarra River and evolved into its present form by the 1930s. This was our lunch spot for the day and very nice it was too. Fun to watch some struggle with their rowing technique from the balcony of the cafe.

End.
