It is a worthy day trip as it is not too far a drive and it is very scenic drive up in the Dandenong Ranges. There are year round attractions you can enjoy such as the Puffying Billy Steam Train ride or if you are there in Spring you can see tulips in full bloom!
Nice eateries up in this area as well for breakfast or brunch or lunch or tea!
Yes I did eat my way through the Dandenong Ranges and also browsed through many a quaint shop up through there.
Nice thing was at the end of it all it was not too hard a drive back to my Melbourne City centre hotel.
