If you’re feeling a little hemmed in, nature provides a wonderful remedy. There’s plenty of space for physical distancing, and stretching the legs is good for the body as well as the mind.

Here are our top 5 blogs to guide your next walk: 

1. Walks less than an hour in the Yarra Valley

Fern gullies, mountain tops, pristine Mountain Ash forests and rainforest wanders.  We have a bucket list of loveliness to explore.

2. Walks by water 

Fresh air guaranteed in wide open spaces – walk by the lakes, rivers and streams of this magical region. 

3. Walks with purpose

Take a self-guided walk and discover everything from historical sites to sustainability hacks.

4. Walks less than an hour in the Dandenong Ranges

Step out for a short walk. Trails through forests, gorgeous gardens and, if you’re needing to break a sweat, some stunning hills to climb with views to love.

*Please note: Due to COVID-19 precautions, the 1000 Steps walk, Dandenong Ranges Botanical Gardens and William Rickets Sanctuary are closed to the public.

Rail trails and walks that never close

Longer walks through gently undulating landscapes. Stop off in a pretty village or break your walk up with an overnight stay.
