The walk starts at Ferntree Gully Picnic Ground and it's a 7.25km walk that will take approximately 3 hours. This walk passes through the cool forest of Melbourne and includes the famous 'thousand steps' that takes you through a lush fern gully. This is all going to happen at a laid back pace and it won't cost you anything to come along.
