A denser Melbourne? What could the city look and feel like if we were a denser city? We are not talking about Hong Kong dense, but rural England dense, how would we benefit from it?
It is summer time and the weather is great, too good to stay stuck up at home. So if you are into the outdoors and a little adventure, here is your place to be to get a sense of where you should go for a hike.
This weeks hike: Trentham Falls
How to get there: Drive to Trentham Falls in Trentham
How long will it take: 0.5-1 hour
Fitness level: Low fitness, it is a mere stroll down some grassy bush to get to the waterfall base.
