Beautiful old forest

We met some very old trees here. Some were gigantic, and all were impressive. The place also had some interesting, colourful birdlife.

for many Europeans this is a fantastic one hour drive from Melbourne. A lovely forest full of green hills and preserved trees and shrubs. Also plenty of coffee shops and restaurants.

An incredible place to visit with family and friends. The beautiful wooded sights took my breath away. Friendly parrots are willing to approach you (avoid feeding them and definitely do not feed them anything other than seed found in the park to protect these beautiful creatures). I felt truly free and full of love at this place and would return... More

The walk into the forest with really tall trees was serene and peaceful but the fall was pretty disappointing. It wasn't exactly a fall but a little stream that ran through rocks as we looked a it from a short bridge.

A great day out walking through the forest to the waterfalls. Keep an eye out for wildlife, especially the birds. Great place for a picnic. Really worth the trip.

There are several scenic walks, very serene and peaceful. Some extra signage may have helped us locate each walk but other than that would highly recommend.

If you book a coach trip with Grey Line or AAT Kings to Healesville, Puffing Billy or the Yarra Valley, your first stop will probably be here. You pull in to Grant's Picnic Ground where you will get a good taste of what the Dandenong Ranges has to offer. There are short walks among the ferns and towering mountain ash... More

Avoid the crowds at 1000 steps and actually enjoy a peaceful walk in the national park nearby. We have been 4 times and each time seen lyre birds, more parrots than you could poke a stick at and occasionally some fast moving swamp wallabies. A range of walks from 500m family strolls to longer 10-20km half days. A couple of... More
