April 7, 2015 1000 Steps at the Kokoda Trail has re-opened after much needed maintenance. Situated in the Dandenong Ranges National Park and setting out from the Ferntree Gully Picnic Ground, ‘the steps’ is a popular destination for nature and fitness lovers alike. It is so loved, a number of the steps had completely eroded and some of the handrails had come lose. Some work on the drainage, rebuilding the steps and handrails – and voila! ‘The steps’ are once again ready for pounding.
