About Tirhatuan Park
Tirhatuan Park is a beautiful open space park located in Dandenong North. This park forms part of the Dandenong Creek vegetation corridor, providing important habitat for our native flora and fauna. The Dandenong Creek bike and walking trail meanders through the relaxing natural surrounds of the 20 hectare park, which includes two lakes, a wetland, boardwalks and beautiful bushland.
Tirhatuan Park is home to the endangered Plains Grassy Wetland Ecological Vegetation Class which provides habitat for many species of frogs, insects and birds, including the endangered Latham’s Snipe (Gallinagi hardwickii) which visits the park from Japan each year.
