The suburb of Ferntree Gully is located 30 kilometres southeast of Melbourne’s Central Business District. It’s at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, under the local government area of the City of Knox. Ferntree Gully’s population is more or less than 27,000.
Ferntree Gully is located at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges and has many Eucalyptus trees (gum trees). Its borders meet Boronia to the north, Scoresby to the west, and Lysterfield to the south. The eastern boundary runs parallel to the Ferntree Gully National Park, which is managed by the Australian government. The Ferntree Gully National Park is in a high-fire-risk area, although the majority of the neighbourhood is classified low-risk.
The Tim Neville Arboretum, on Dorset Road in the Dandenong Ranges, is a popular playground for tourists to the area. The arboretum is essentially a fun-filled playground developed specifically for children and is a great spot to spend the weekend. To keep the youngsters safe while they play, the entire playground is surrounded by a robust fence with access controlled by a child-proof gate. The Tim Neville Arboretum includes both sunny and shady grassy spots for a picture-perfect picnic. A lovely lake and wetlands system with ducks can be found (and ducklings in the spring).
The concept of the beautiful Wally Tew Reserve Playground with natural components is “Forest Floor.” Bugs have never been so fascinating and entertaining. Two spectacular bug sculptures are the playground’s focal point. A curved exterior ladder or a succession of platforms and ladders inside the bug’s intestines can access one creature’s wooden shell and metallic lattice top. When you reach the top, a metal tunnel slide will take you back to the forest floor. Climbing frames and a curved metal wing slide are part of another massive metal bug. A magnificent metal digger and a lovely curvy table for eating run around the centre area of the playground.Call Us Enquire Now
