A Walk in The Dandenong Ranges

Wife. Mama. Photographer. Writer. Tea and chocolate fan ;)
My 2,5 year old daughter loves Peppa Pig, ice cream and having the freedom to run wild. No Mama or Papa insisting she hold hands, watch out for cars, doesn’t stray too far away while shopping…and the list goes on!

While they’re necessary, I also try to remind myself that these well-intended boundaries can be very frustrating for her. This is why a couple of hours in the Dandenong ranges is our perfect Sunday afternoon as a family.



As it’s mid-winter in Melbourne, there’s a lot of mud but nothing a pair of gumboots can’t handle!



Do you need an updated family portrait?
We chose one of the many walking tracks that are available in the Dandenong Ranges and got going. Sure, we didn’t technically walk very far but our Little miss had a great time exploring. She played with fallen down leaves and branches; she searched for ‘animal friends’ and giggled (while covering her ears) every time she heard a kookaburra laugh loudly – ‘kookaburra’ being her new favourite word.



There was no whining; no spills on the couch; no tripping over toys that weren’t there 2 seconds ago and my nerves were restored for another week.
