The 100 Steps to Federation is a stone staircase made of local basalt rock and the steps lead up to the highest point of land between Melbourne and the You Yangs. On a clear day you'll have views of Port Phillip Bay and the city.

We visited on a rather bleak day but still enjoyed the trek and the admiring the ‘Time Beacon' sculpture by Cameron Robbins.

The park's wetlands are a habitat for birds and wildlife and if you look and listen carefully you'll see water birds flying and hear frogs croaking.

While there's no playground at the park there is a lot of space to run! So bring a kite, frisbee, ball or outdoor sport set or just enjoy riding or running up and down the rolling hills. Bring your own picnic or barbecue supplies and enjoy the serenity.

HOT Tips:

  • BYO food and sporting equipment/toys;
  • free parking at the base of the 100 steps;
  • nearest public transport is bus stop at Victoria St, Altona Meadows;
  • Truganina Park is one of the stops on the bike path along the Hobsons Bay Coastal Trail.
