There's nothing like putting your phone down and getting in touch with nature.

It can clear your brain, and give you the reset you didn't know you needed, and with so many fantastic walks around Melbourne, there's no reason not to fill up your drink bottle and head out the door.

Here are some of our favourite walks that are not too far from town.

Point Nepean Walk - Mornington Peninsula

Take in some epic views as Bass Strait is on one side of you, and Port Phillip Bay on the other side. Explore the tip of the Mornington Peninsula, but watch out as it can be quite windy!

Werribee Gorge Circuit Walk

FYI Werribee Gorge is not actually in Werribee. About an hour's drive north west of Melbourne, this circuit really has it all. The full circuit will take up most of your day, and is not a walk in the park - but you will be highly rewarded for your efforts!
