Glen Harrow Park


Glen Harrow Gardens:

Once Wurundjeri nation land, the estate now spans eight hectares of mostly forest alongside the Puffing Billy station in Belgrave. It features rare trees, including a magnificent 150-year-old Algerian Oak, used as the ‘home tree’ for the adventure courses, the gigantic Sequoia that rises sixty metres above the earth and two Chinquapin – the only known Japanese oaks in Victoria.

F.A.Q on Glen Harrow Park

Click here for General F.A.Q

Are you easy to find?

No, we are a very tricky place to find! We’re tucked away in a residential area. Google Maps is the best way to locate us. Follow the signs to Puffing Billy and Glen Harrow Gardens (brown signs). Old Monbulk Rd turns into a steep residential dirt road after the train tracks of Puffing Billy, and our car park is at the top of the dirt road. Only toilets are in the car park.

Is it free to watch?

Yes all spectators are welcome to watch free of charge. You will be able to watch participants from the ground walking on the path below. Please be weary that some of the paths are steep.

Can we bring along food or drink?

We do not sell food on site but you are welcome to bring your own. We do have a small selection of hot drinks, cold drinks and snacks. Keep your items compact and transportable! The park is a bit of a walk from the car park. Check out our ‘What to do around’ tab for a few good places to grab a bite.

Can I use my own helmet?

Unfortunately personal helmets cannot be worn with us. Only helmets supplied by Trees Adventure can be worn on the course. For adventure video cameras, please see our FAQ’s.

Do you have BBQ facilities?

Due to the risk of fire, we do not permit any BBQ to be used on site. Check out our ‘What to do around’ tab for some good places to have a BBQ.
