Get some Perspective & Escape the noise and pressures of the concrete jungle. Less than one hour from the Melbourne CBD you can be SkyHigh – on the uppermost reach of the Dandenong Ranges, amid cool fern glades and lush towering native forest, looking at the big picture, from the Mornington Peninsula across the majestic sweep of Port Phillip Bay, surrounded by Melbourne’s growing urban fringes, to the You Yangs on the southern horizon. After sunset the southern sky, brilliant in the clear mountain night, is imitated by a spectacular carpet of glittering city lights. Highlights include:- Viewing platforms with stunning views that sweep across the Mornington Peninsula and Port Phillip Bay , to the You Yangs on the Southern horizon The picturesque ‘secret garden’ – ideal for wedding ceremonies and private functions SkyHigh garden maze constructed from native flora.

Great view, ok food

My family and i went for lunch here. It wasnt a bad experience, the food was good but not great. I guess the views and affordable prices made the experience better than the food. Im going back here again so it is one of those places thats not just about the food.

I went with my family on the occasion of my husband's birthday. We thought of having some coffees before dinner and especially asked them if we were allowed to sit in the dining area. The girl taking the order said we could and so we did. After 5 mins another waitress came and told us we had to move outside... More

Enjoyed the eye fillet. Good range of local wines. Views towards Melbourne IF you book early and request a table near the window. The service was excellent and the staff were helpful with dietary intolerances.

Very relaxing afternoon. Gorgeous garden to walk through and a great view of Melbourne from up there. We had a lovely roast lunch and the children were well catered for having their own table and kids packs.

We enjoyed limousine transfers directly to and from Candlelight Cottages where we were staying. The meal was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed watching the sun go down as we ate and then watching the stars in the night sky and chatted as we waited for our limousine to collect us afterwards, Highly recommended.

The view is incredible, but there is no restaurant, n kiosk was very small n gift shop had nothing in it! Kiosk staff was rude, was a bit pointless paying $5 for 5 minutes of view. But there was garden walks and a maze available. But I went at night so didn't see them.

Limo service is a nice touch.. very welcome as we were staying on the Mountain. Food was good. staff friendly Need to make the waitress wear a little more stylish and less RSL look We think that you could do the whole dining experience much better however. Maybe a sheer curtain across the back of the dining area to screen... More

Surprised my wife for our 3rd wedding anniversary. We were both blown away by the amazing nighttime views. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The meals we had were also amazing. A great atmosphere for a romantic dinner with the breathtaking views of the city. Cant wait to get back there again, maybe next time we will try breakfast... More

My daughter and I were very impressed when the restaurant sent a Limousine to pick us up from our accommodation in Olinda to take us to SkyHigh. Our driver, Owen, was very knowledgeable about the area and when we arrived at the restaurant he took us for a walk around the outside to show us the stunning view of Melbourne... More
