Melbourne Topic

Melbourne weather, but not as you know it. Is Melbourne overly obsessed with its own weather? Let me know by tweeting at me @ellojamie. And what is Auckland weather?

Melbourne Hikes

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: 1000 Steps

How to get there: Drive or take the train to Ferntree Gully
How long will it take: 1.5 hours return
Fitness level: Reasonable fitness, but there are seats to have a rest on the way
Level of reward: Low. You will feel accomplished for finishing the 1000 steps, but there is no rewarding sight at the top
