La visitamos un día en que la previsión meteorológica no era la mas idónea para ir a pasear por los bosques impresionantes de Eucaliptos y esos enormes helechos. Al entrar al parque hay una zona donde puedes ver los loros grandes blancos y los pequeñitos azules y rojos, se les puede dar de comer pero pagando previamente su saquito de... More

We were picked up from our Hotel, then the tour left from Federation square. We went to the Dandenongs, had a great morning tea of Billy tea made by our tour host, then there were birds to feed and enjoy the scenery, before going to Belgrave Staion to join the Puffing Billy train then travelling on the famous Trestle Bridge...

Beautiful views of Melbourne from this mountain range. The little towns along the way are charming. If you have a car, it is well worth the 45 min drive from the city.

Great area to explore with lots of hidden places to find and explore! Amazing restaurants and cafes nestled amongst the trees, and wonderful nature walks! A great day out for all ages!

The Beautiful Dandenong Ranges. Sometimes called the Blue Dandenongs because of the haze from the gum trees. If you are new to Melbourne do not get the Dandenong Train. It is no where near the Dandenongs. Catch the upway line train where you will meet up with "Puffing Billy" a tourist train that takes you on a slow ride throught... More

Great day out from Melbourne, it is about a 50minute drive from Melbourne Central. I recommend starting at the Skyhigh viewing deck ($6 entry for car) to see the views of Melbourne and explore the gardens. Drive back from here to Olinda, Sassafras and Kalista and browse the shops and eateries before heading to Grants on Sherbrooke and pay $4... More

Stunning views! We were there on a cloudy cold day but it was still worth the visit. There is a cafe and restaurant with amazing views

I love visiting the Dandenong Ranges. Its so beautiful and green. Usually a couple of degrees colder than Melbourne city, but the air is so fresh and clean. I love visiting the 1000 steps, and going to Sassafras and Olinda. Cute towns with lovely cafes, and shops to explore. Always busy with locals and tourists but a perfect day out

We had hired a car for a day during a trip to the city and decided to head up to the Ranges for a change of scenery. Surprisingly quick and easy to get to from the CBD. We drove through Sherbrooke forest and took the unsealed road for a few kms. The villages can be busy, especially Sassafras, parking was... More

The Great Ocean Road is, without a doubt, my favourite spot to take a drive and soak in the gorgeous surroundings, but the Dandenong Ranges is an extremely close second. The thing I really like about the Dandenong's is that there is much less tourist traffic -- you can really enjoy all of it amidst (virtual) silence. This may have... More
