Beautiful partof Victoria with little towns and lots of European inspired cafes, restaurants, B&Bs and shops. Forests are tall and the birdlife are easy to find.

“More than a day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The Dandenong Ranges is a great place to go to get away from the city.
We used to live in Emerald before moving interstate and have visited all over the ranges. There is far too much to see and do in the area, so the best bet is to contact the local tourist information as in reality, you will need weeks to see the whole area.

“Plenty of walks or even just drive through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Something for everyone. Lovely bending drives through mountain ash forest. Plenty of short easy and harder walks. Small villages Olinda , Kallist, Sassafras for cafes / smal shops.Well worth a visit. Loads of picnic/barbecue spots

“Top of the World - Melbourne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Very scenic views and beautiful vintage cottages all the way to Miss Marples. Had scones with jam and cream and tea for morning tea at Miss Marples. Lots of little shops to window shop. Abundant restaurants to choose from for example International, Irish pubs or German buffett (Cuckoo). A must for visitors from local or overseas. Recommended highly.

“An hour from Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Only an hour from Melbourne, but you feel like you've travelled to another country. Beautiful vistas, winding roads, tall trees and tree ferns. Take a walk through the rainforest and listen to the birds - wonderful. There are many places to go for a Devonshire Tea. Antique shops and interesting boutiques - enough to keep you entertained for a day, a weekend, or a week.
