The 1000 steps Kokoda walk is a must experience. Climb and walk through beautiful terrain. It would suit most walkers of varying fitness level as you can stop and take in the view & smell the fresh air along the way.

Could not be a better place to take the kids and overseas visitors for a wonder view/stroll. Mt Dandenong is a highlight of the whole experience.

Travelled to Mt. Dandenong to Skyhigh. See Melbourne skyline from 600m, beautiful views, nice restaurant at the top and maze, only thing I would say about this is don't understand why they charge $6 just to park, but still a good day out.

Absolutely a must see when you visit Melbourne. Is accessible by train to Belgrave or Boronia where you can catch a bus through the mountains and up to Sky High where you can have a wonderful view of Melbourne and surrounding suburbs

Hope I'm reviewing the right attraction. Despite early on a weekday this place was packed so I had to park further down the road. The scenery is very impressive and the walk will exert a fit person. Could get worse if it was a hot day but was overcast. Good for half a day to enjoy scenery and the hike.... More

What a beautiful place to visit something to suit all ages, whether its a ride on Puffing Billy to Emerald Lake, or a stroll around the villages of Olinda or Sassafras taking in the various gift shops, visiting a wide choice of cafes, restaurants or pubs to suit all budgets, the Dandenong Ranges are a must visit for all visitors...
