What you'll do

(Night tours now available) Starting with a glimpse of Puffing Billy, a beautiful old steam train, spend a couple of hours exploring 4-5km of old-growth forests, beautiful creeks and Australian wildlife. You're bound to meet some of our cute native parrots, lyrebirds, cockatoos and kookaburras, to name a few. Great for children... and big kids too. These forests are one of Melbourne's best kept secrets, you'll hardly believe it's so close to the city, but so quiet and serene! Your tour is a picture-perfect way to experience the Australian outdoors close to the city, while learning about photography with the flora and fauna of the Dandenong Ranges. With plenty of one-on-one instruction, you will learn to take amazing photos whether you’re packing the latest DSLR or a camera phone. All levels of hikers and types of cameras are welcome, but if you prefer to simply walk without taking photos, that's fine as well. The tour is accessible from Melbourne via a metro train. After the experience concludes, there is an optional stop in for a coffee or I can assist in getting you on board Puffing Billy. Imagine, a beautiful ride through the Yarra Valley on a one-hundred-year-old steam train!

Where you'll be

We'll begin in the 150yr old forest town of Belgrave, walking past Puffing Billy for 10mins to a hiking track in the Dandenongs, loved by locals. Having regular rest stops, we practice photography & study flora & fauna. Stopping by a waterfall among tree ferns and mountain gums. Half the walk meanders uphill, it's easy, fun & safe, regardless of age, then we gradually descend down along dappled forest ridges to great cafes & shops in Belgrave.
