We spent a weekend in the mountains during February and very much enjoyed the time there. Melbourne was in the middle of a run of very hot weather and escaping to the mountains helped take the edge off the temperature.
We took our dogs and enjoyed being able to relax in the atmosphere that while next to Melbourne, runs at a different pace.
I'd strongly recommend spending a weekend here if you're able too, but they are close enough to be able to pop up for a day trip and enjoy the arts, crafts, relaxation and food!
