Ferntree Gully Hotel & Accommodation

Ferntree Gully makes up the south-east bit of the Dandenong Ranges National Park and it's 30-odd kms East from Melbourne's CBD. It's loved by travellers and day-trippers for its birdlife, picnic areas and walking tracks. The Kokoda Walk (or 1000 Step Walk) is the best of the bunch, and is a punishing but pretty good 5 km slog. You can get to Upper Ferntree Gully station on the Belgrave Metlink line from Flinders Street station. Ferny bound? Find a place to stay below.
