DCMC does not take bookings for private functions although you are welcome to use the parklands keeping in mind you must leave the park as you found it. Loud amplified music, party poppers, confetti are not endorsed.
There is a base fee of $550 including GST. This fee covers a DCMC staff member holding the site on the day, bins, access to power at the Amphitheatre site and site preparation the day before (mowing, clean up etc). For vehicle access and professional marques set up please contact DCMC for more information as extra fees apply.
As the Parklands used to be a quarry and then a tip, water infiltrates the rubbish underground which is collected and treated through a network of ponds and bio-filters. The ponds are part of this system.
DCMC in partnership with the Darebin Parklands Association is trapping the Indian Myna bird in an effort to rid this pest bird from the parklands thus allowing native birds to breed up and populate the parklands once more.
