This is a nice place to spend day with kids. And the important thing is that visitors can use public transport train and bus from Melbourne to here. Drive is very scenic through the rain forest. Great picnic spot, cafe, restaurant, gift shop on the sky deck. In the clear can see skylines of Melbourne downtown and other near by... More

Everywhere is pretty. However, if you really want to appreciate this area go down dirt track roads. Take adventures towards picnic grounds. This is where you will stumble across, like us beauty at its finest. We saw a family of black and yellow cockatoos. The baby squawking so loud for food as one watched over him and the other looked...

Took a day trip which was well worth tge $6 carpark charge. Views from the platform changed throughout our visit which we enjoyed seeing the city in the mist/rain then becoming very clear. This is one of those places that you are at the mercy of the elements. Take clothing for all weathers as you can get them here. Refreshements... More

The 1000 steps is a fantastic way to explore the outdoors whilst being active. The natural landscape is beautiful although a little disappointing to see that people have left behind bottles instead of putting them in the rubbish.

Really love this place. If you really want to challenge your stamina then you should come here. Kids love the kids playing park very much. It is a lovely place to go and spend some times with family.

Hop Skip Jump…………… and your in the Dandenong Rangers, less than an hour from Melbourne's CBD. You can experience a little of every thing in the Dandenong Rangers from wrought thick bush to fine dining restaurants, something for everyone

Best for something to do on a warm night. Get some pizza and drive up for a great view that no camera can capture. The drive is perfect especially in a sports car and the secret lookout is a quite spot to run away to.

A trip in to nature. Buy some seed and the parrotts will come down from the trees. Take a walk along the many trails. Wild flowers. Trees wonderfully green. Plenty of picnic areas. Take a walk up the 1000 steps. Quite breathtaking. Then take a strole through the quaint shops in OLINDA or something to eat in one of the... More
