It was a great way to immerse yourself in nature. I especially liked the William Ricketts Sanctuary and the National Rhododendron Gardens.

Dandenongs scenery pleasant but not outstanding in Australian terms. Small towns are OK but quite touristy & crowded. Views of Melbourne from Mt Dandenong effected by smog. A couple of great cafes!

The William Rickets Sanctuary is a beautiful walk through sub tropical rainforest, along the path are many aboriginal and native Statues. Some are of animals,some William himself , some his aboriginal friends. Great for photography or visitors from overseas. Many great tourist attractions nearby also.
