If you want to see whole Melbourne from one place, this is that place. The beautiful panoramic view of Melbourne is breathtaking. There are restaurants for you to have some food while watching the places. A maze is there if you like to indulge in some game. There is an entry fee for the maze. $16 per family. Also there...

The views from the top are spectacular. Gardens are nicely manicured as well. Food is very good. For an entrée we had the beef satays & the scallops. Both were excellently cooked with great flavour. On the down side, the serves are really tiny for the price. The satays were 2 x 2" sticks with 3 pieces of meat on... More

Generally a great location for a family outing, nice gardens (with BBQs) great views towards the City of Melbourne and of course a wonderful National Park for walking, hiking and bike riding. What's missing though is a warm welcoming staff at the cafe and better quality food! Often you have to stand patiently in one too long queue waiting to... More

Yes the view says it all, that's great the food less so. Any themed eatery is always a hazard they rely on the attraction to get you there not the quality of service & food be warned.

View is good from Skyhigh but restaurant is very poor services, waiting for an hour just for chips. When asking when my food ready, keep telling you soon. Terrible customer services, highly not recommended. Food is expensive too.

We paid $38 for three afternoon teas which included tea/coffee, scones, jam and cream. We collected the scones after a few minutes but had to wait nearly 25 minutes for 1 cup of tea and 2 cups of coffee. Having eaten most of our scones, we enquired twice about the drinks but were sent back to our seats twice. The... More

We have a winner for the worst cafe in Dandenong Ranges! The soup was too peppery. Pastries not sufficiently warmed. Chocolate cake was not spongy. Tasted more sweet than chocolaty. Coffee was overly bitter. And there was no view that evening as the skies were overcast. This was not their fault though.

The name sky high is a very catchy label. I reached the point on a cloudy day I had a view of the Melbourne skyline It would have been good on a clear sunny day . Night view on that day was not that great. Those wanting a view of Melbourne should check the weather before going there The restaurant... More
