Believe it or not, we are quickly approaching picnic season.



Nothing beats throwing a rug and copious amounts of snacks and treats in to the car and heading to one of Melbourne's finest picnic spots to while away the best part of a day.



One spot that the G boys an I are particularly fond of is the sunning Jells Park. A little piece of serenity hidden amongst the suburbs.



Situated in the south east of Melbourne, this stand out location boasts more than 100 hectares of open space with over nine kilometres of paths and trails.

It's a ideal spot for the kids to take their bikes or scooters, fly a kite, kick a ball, throw a frisbee or simply just run amok.



With a choice of three playgrounds, plenty of picnic areas and BBQs, there is enough here to keep the little people going for hours.

And as if this wasn't enough, the kids will love checking out the bird life on the lake.



There is also a café at the park called Madeleines which offers eat in or take away options. On a sunny day this place is bursting at the seams with the young and old enjoying the great outdoors.

There is ample free parking and toilets next to the café. The park has 24 hour access for anyone on foot but gates for cars open and shut at specific time depending on the time of year.

Jells Park entrances can be found on Ferntree Gully Road and Waverley Road.

There are no bins around the park so visitors are encouraged to take their rubbish home with them.

If you find that you still have energy to burn, Chesterfield Farm is only a short distance by car or within walking distance from Jells Park.

All sound too good to be true? Well go find out for yourself, I guarantee you'll be going back for more.

Where: Jells Park, Waverly Road, Wheelers Hill VIC 3150
