Kalorama to Sassafras via the Kyeema Track
2 h 45 min to 4 h 30 min
1 h 30 min to 2 h 15 min
This track starts near the Kalorama CFA on Ridge Road, Kalorama, leading to Sassafras via the Kyeema Track. The Kyeema Track is named after the Australian National Airways plane that crashed into Mt. Dandenong on October 25, 1938. Embark on this quiet and peaceful walk that leads you through the Dandenong Ranges, between tall mountain ash, gum trees and gullies of tree ferns, presenting spectacular views of the surrounding landscape throughout. Along the way, you'll find Bourke's Lookout, which provides a panoramic view across metropolitan Melbourne. Some parts of the walk are challenging, with a lot of steep inclines and declines on mostly gravel tracks. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
