Great to do both the walking track and then wander around the beautiful gardens.
Great little wading area for kids when doing the gardens walk.

Walked in both the natural bush land and Australian Garden sections many times. Superb flora and fauna.

Best view from the top! Hard but worth it trail

I often do this walk. very peaceful. Lovely by the Yarra River. Great place to walk your dog too!

nice walk in a green urban environment however the road noise level is a bit too high and there is a lot of rubbish everywhere.

scenic and easy trail .. loved it!

Definietly not moderate - much harder than the 1000 steps but I’d do it again - it was cloudy so no views :(

Not moderate, hard, I've had people tell me this is harder than the 1000 steps, we will say this track starts from the bottom of glasgow road, everyone parks at the bottom for it, the hike isnt easy, as it is nothing but uphill, it starts off night and easy, then it becomes a real grind until the final few minutes of the walk. once you're at the 'top' turn right for the lookout, the view is stunning.

Goes right by the river, easy, pleasant

I love this climb up the side of Mt Dandenong. Definitely a hard climb though and a suggestion to go down Zig Zag track for an easier and safer descent

It’s a circular trail with decent incline/decline at the valley. I had numerous encounters with lyrebirds and kookaburra. It’s a nice quick morning walk to start the day.

This was a nice and easy hike. You can walk on the trail or walk on the beach for sections.

A wonderful walk around the gardens here with the highlight being the view from the Trigpoint and tower. Used this as part of my Oxfam Trailwalker 2017 Training schedule.
