Starting from Mount Dandenong Touist Road parking lot just off Burwood Highway, this circuit walk heads north along Tree Frun Gully Track past The 1000 Steps Cafe and Kokoda Lest We Forget memorial. The 1000 steps will get your heart racing before reaching the One Tree Hill picnic area where you can catch some breath and stop for lunch. This great fitness track in Dandenong Ranges National Park will energise you and along the way remind you of our land's history. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
