I have been visiting the Dandenongs since I was a boy and climbed up to see the snow one winter. The area is old volcanic with rich soil that hosts a range plants and animals, include giant eucalypts, tree ferns and lyrebirds. Since white settlement, people have settled in bush surrounded houses and cottages and brought a range on northern... More

The bird park was excellent for family outing. Some kids may find it enjoyable but some smaller ones maybe afraid as the birds flew low and were fearless. But it was amazing to see so many wild birds flocking and feeding among humans. Great to be among nature! To feed the bird, pay $4 for the feed. Otherwise just stand... More

The Dandenong Rangers are a must visit place for tourists. Great for bushwalking or a trip on Puffing Billy steam train. I go there often.

A fab way to spend a day. The ranges are beautiful, lots of wildlife and plenty of little villages with cafés to get drinks or snacks..

Spent two days here. Had a ride on the Puffing Billy to Gembrook and back which took most of the day. Scenery quite diverse from forest to farms. Spent the next day at Healsville staying overnight at Wiggly Farm Cottage which was a great location. Ate at Innocent Bystander which was really good. Visited Healsville Sanctuary to see Australian wildlife... More

A must visit for all travelers to experience the beautiful Dandenongs! A lot activities are available. Makes for a great day out, especially if the day is nice and sunny. A beautiful drive, not very far from CBD. Must have the Devonshire tea in the small cafe's. Even for kids there is so much to see- especially the train ride.

Had a great day out with the family. A very relaxed family atmosphere. They even opened up the Maze for us, despite it being closed.
