Had a lovely morning walk here. Views are amazing even though it was a bit cloudy when we went. Worth the trip up there just to see the views!!

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.

I am up in the Dandenongs most weekends. There are hundreds of tracks for the intrepid hiker. They range from 'sedate', through 'challenging' to 'very energetic'. Depending on mood we pick whatever category we fancy and disappear for a few hours into the bush. The townships such as Sassafrass, Belgrave, Mount Evelyn or Emerald offer a good variety of eating...

Driving through this beautiful area needs to be done slowly so you can truly enjoy what you are travelling through. There are some magnificent B & B's, fantastic restaurants and tiny villages to enjoy. Why waste a minute.
