What you'll do
The North East suburb of Macleod is about 18 km from Flinders Street Station, we shall go hiking in search of a troop of kangaroos within a natural forest reserve. If we are lucky, we could find a troop of grey kangaroos lazing around their natural habitat, other wildlife animals like cockatoos, parrots, echidnas, blue tongue lizards, ducks and emus spreads throughout the reserve and it is up to you to search and hear for them too. The weather in Melbourne can sometimes be rainy, sunny, cloudy and windy conditions all within a day, please check the weather prior to arrival as this will affect your enjoyment of the walk. From October to March seasons, the best time to start the walk is in the morning when the air is crispy and the sun rising, very comfortable conditions to walk the trails. Wear comfortable track shoes and clothes, the walk around the gated reserve is about one hour and prepare to track on slightly up a gradient track. After the walk, we can take a break for drinks & snacks in a house opposite the forest reserve, relax your feet, have a chat about the experience and enjoy a uniquely different suburbia lifestyle.
Snacks Cheese platter, olives, crackers, dips, carrot sticks or other seasonal veggie cuts
Water, coffee & tea Locally sourced beer, wines are also available for afternoon session.
I am a relax guy, engaging in conversations, stoic by nature, minimalist with a world views on things and I love the great outdoors. My family of 4 is living in this nice leafy suburb for the last eight years and I am still discovering the joy of searching for kangaroos and observing native floras & faunas as an interesting hobby. Love to share this experience if you are keen to know more
