There are hundreds of natural features registered with the National Trust in Melbourne and throughout Victoria. This walk takes us to several magnificent trees that are registered as treasured landmarks while also seeing some of inner Melbourne. The trees range from 70 to over 400 years, indigenous to exotic. This walk also takes you to many parts of inner Melbourne with many shops, cafes and restuarants along the way.
Take a walk beside the sea, play or laze on the beach, swim, gaze at the yachts, revel in the sea air, stroll along the piers and then grab a coffee on the historic St Kilda Pier or in one of the many cosmopolitan cafés.
