Burnley Bouldering Wall (Burnley)




Burnley Bouldering Wall is an area under the freeway which has a large number of bouldering climbs on inclined walls set in the middle of Melbourne.

Directions to Climbing Wall:

By car
From Swan St Richmond, turn into Coppin St on the KFC side of the road. Go to the end and turn left into Barkly Avenue. Pass through the Parks Victoria entranceway and park you vehicle. Wander down the gravel driveway towards the river, turn right and walk across the floating pontoon bridge, and after approximately 100m you're there!

By bicycle
Follow the Yarra Trail to Burnley. When you find yourself opposite Herring Island, and in between Coppin St and Mary St on the map, you're there.

By tram
Tram 78 along Church St gets you the closest.
Take tram 78 along Church St Richmond and get off as close as possible to the intersection of Church St and Yorkshire St. Walk east along Yorkshire St in the direction of Mary St. Turn right into Mary St , walk through the Pedestrian subway and turn left when you hit the river. Walk for 200m or so and you're there.

Alternatively, take tram number 70 along Swan St Richmond and get off at the intersection of Swan St and Coppin St. Turn left at the end into Barkly Ave, and go through the Parks Vic entranceway. Walk down the gravel driveway and turn right when you hit the river. Walk across the floating pontoon bridge and Burnley is on your right.

Review:


Three different climbing walls of increasing difficulty under shelter. Go along to watch climbers attempt the more difficult routes and have a try yourself on the easier wall. The walls are not so high that you are likely to suffer injury when you come off the wall.
