A country paradise in Trentham is just over an hour away
Trentham is a small town 87 kilometres north-west of Melbourne. It has a beautiful main street with plenty to do on a trip from Melbourne.

Start your walk at Trentham Town Square, "The Gateway to the Wombat State Forest" and enjoy the pretty park at the start of High Street.
