“Gorgeous and Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

There is so much to do in the Dandenongs, my favourites being the memorial gardens scattered around, as well as Grants Hill; where you can feed roselas and cockatoos, as well as go on a bushwalk where you may see a lyrebird (we did!). On that walk we also saw two echidnas and they were extremely adorable. All the birds have attitude too. Great for a day trip away from the hussle and bussle. There are also some nice wineries along the way.

“A place to enjoy nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Just a short drive out of suburbia and you find yourself in a wonderland of nature. Take time to do some of the walks. Most are less challenging than they look. Alway check bush fire warnings before entering any national parks.

“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is a beautiful area of Victoria. It was a bit dry but still quite lush and green. We did a bus tour through here with APT. The towns were quaint & the people were friendly

“The most extroadinary place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The ferns along the road and bushwalks are so gorgeous. See nature at its finest and sometimes come face to face with a wallaby.
Don't forget to come eye to eye with the beautiful birdlife. In any season this is the place to explore, hug some trees and get grounded.
