1000 Steps Walk
Escape the city centre and head to the Dandenong Ranges National Park for a peaceful and leisurely walk in nature.

The 1,000 Steps Kokoda Track Memorial Walk is just over an hour train journey from Southern Cross Station, alight at Upper Ferntree Gully (Belgrave line), and then walk east, following Burwood Highway (about 1 km), to the park entrance.

The 1,000 Steps Walk is 3 km long; at a leisurely pace, expect to take approximately 1 hour to complete the walk. Enjoy the fresh crisp clean air, native plants and birds (you may be lucky enough to see a lyrebird), and magical views along a well maintained path.

1000 Steps Walk
Wear comfortable and sturdy walking shoes, carry a bottle of water, and a pack a light lunch to enjoy at the small picnic grounds at One Tree Hill, at the top of steps.

This walk is moderate to difficult, requiring a reasonable degree of fitness.

All native plants and animals are protected by law. Please do not disturb them in any way. Remember to take all your rubbish with you.
