Welcome to Melbourne Day Walks! I’m going to be walking through the 40 walks described in the book “40 bushland & park walks in metropolitan Melbourne” by Tyrone T. Thomas. My goal is to complete at least one walk a week – time and weather permitting. I might also throw in a few longer walks outside of the metro area.

On each walk I will take some photos and publish them on here with some notes about the track, scenery, difficulty etc.

Most of the walks in the book are reasonably short for day walks, from around 4km-10km, taking 1-3 hours to complete. But considering how large and spread Melbourne is, many of the walks will take a while to drive or public transport to, meaning they will take most of the day.

Spring is about to start… Perfect time to begin! Here’s hoping for good weather this weekend.
