“Beautiful and rugged”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

There's so much to see and do in the Dandenongs. Take a Puffing Billy train ride through them. Go to Skyhigh and marvel at the views or simply hop in the car and just drive around and stop wherever you can. There are some wonderful small towns which are very welcoming. A really stunningly beautiful area.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Only an hour out of town and well worth it for more than just the nature factor. Puffing Billy and Earthly Pleasures is a must!

“Great driving and riding.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Love taking my bike and scooter up here. Nice winding roads, great cafes and brilliant views. 5 to 10 degrees cooler than Melbourne on a hot summers day.

“Lovely On A Hot Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

The trees are truly majestic and along with the tree ferns make for a unique Aussie experience. Don't know how many times we have been, but keep going back and back. Heaps of little places for lunch, a barbeque and even a walk through the forest areas.
