1000 Steps and Picnic Lunch

Lets get active with the kids and head up to the 1000 Steps in the Dandenongs.
Pack a lunch and bring it along in a backpack to enjoy after the hike up the steps at the picnic spot at the top of the hike.
I've attached a link to a video that gives you a bit of an idea of the walk/hike: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnK9Aw0nJFw#t=371

Meet at the bottom of the trail (near the big archway sign that you can see in the video).

I'll send an email with my mobile number closer to the day to everyone that RSVPs.

    Hi Denise was just wondering your opinion on a 3 and a half yro making it up the steps? I have done it many times but im worried about my toddler making it thx

    May 16, 2014

    • Denise

      Hi Kathryn.
      Sorry for not getting back to you in tie for the walk.
      I was the first time that I'd done the 'climb' and my almost 4 and a half year old did it too. He did it easily, in fact I think was first up out of the group. In saying that, there is a big difference between 3 and 4, and the steps are rather steep in spots.
      We're going to be doing the climb again in a few weeks time; if you are able, come along and give it a go. We're going to have lunch down the bottom next time and there's a playground for the kids, so at the worst case scenario and you can't do the climb, it's still a day out for the both of you.

      May 18, 2014

    • kathryn

      Oh thx so much and if we are free will definitely be there and even if we make it half way tayla would love to wait at the play ground to wait ;) look forward to it :)

    Hi there, I'd love to join you but my daughter has sport till 12. Maybe I could join you afterwards...what time do you think you'll be there until?

    April 26, 2014

    • Denise

      HI Ingrid! Am not sure of a definite time that we will be finished, but basically we will be doing the walk/climb then having some lunch and then walking back down. I would imagine that we'd be there until 2-ish/3-ish? If you call me when you finish I can give you a better idea. My number is[masked]

    Am really looking forward to tomorrow; the weather is going to be excellent!
    Am hoping that everyone has my number by now, but just in case: [masked]

    I'll aim to get there a bit before 11:00 and will wait near the big archway before the start of the walk.

    Don't forget to bring a yummy lunch for us to eat and relax at the top. :)
