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.
