Dandenong Ranges, Melbourne (Australia)

The Dandenong Ranges are a set of low-rising mountains in Melbourne. The highest peak here is Mount Dandenong at only 633 meters. But these green highlands covered in ferns and ash trees make for the perfect holiday destination near the city. Before 1987, the ranges were divided into several parklands which were visited by backpackers, hikers and day-trippers. In 1987, all of them were united to form Dandenong Ranges National Park. There are many fun and exciting attractions here for tourists to enjoy.

Attractions of Dandenong Ranges

The best of the Dandenong Ranges attractions is the Puffing Billy steam railway ride. The train toots its way from Belgrave through thick forests, fern nettles and green farmlands and stops at Gembrook. This is the most perfect way to see the beauty of Dandenong without any hassle. Alfred Nicholas Memorial and the Dandenong Ranges botanic garden are two parks you can visit. There are towering mountain ash trees, a pristine lake and a boathouse to explore here through winding lanes in the first, while the second is covered in rhododendrons. William Rickett’s Sanctuary and its mysterious statues and the 1000 steps of the Kokoda Memorial Hall are the hidden treasures of Dandenong. There are multiple creeks, walking trails and trekking routes to explore. On the paths, trekkers can see Dandenong ranges waterfalls like Olinda and Sherbrooke. Summiting Mount Dandenong or Mount Corhanwarrabul and getting a glimpse of the entire valley below is one of the best trekking activities here.

Things to Do at Dandenong Ranges

Admire the beauty of the Alfred Nicholas Gardens: The gardens are surreal and aesthetically beautiful. Planted by two brothers, Alfred Nicholas and George, the gardens feature a collection of maples, gingkos, mountain ash, and liquid ambers.

Shop for Plants at Sassafras: There are many nurseries in Dandenong from where you can buy some exotic species of plants. The most famous one is in the Sassafras area called Conifer Gardens Nursery where you will find plant species like black pines, conifers, Japanese maples, etc.

Shop for antiques at Mangana: This is a good place to shop for antique things like postcards, antique furniture, vintage items, chess board, woven rugs, classic antique jewelry, and many such items.

Trek on the U-Pick Trail: The Dandenong Ranges are all covered with orchards and berry farms and U-Pick trail is a trail that allows the visitors to taste these fruits. There are also cellars on these farms where you can shop for local produce.

Soothe the Senses by Taking a Spa: There are a number of day spa centers at the Dandenong Range where you can take a relaxing and a soothing day spa. You can go to Mountain and Elle Natural and Japanese Mountain Retreat Mineral Springs and Spa as these two are one of the best day spa retreats in the area.

    Mohit's 12 days trip to Melbourne

    It was a well planned and closely monitored trip by Mr. Raunak. We enjoyed every bit of our stay in Newzealand and experienced the countryside & nature's wilderness. Raunak was single handedly instrumental in finalising the itenary with the group and making all the arrangements as per our requirements within the budget. We do look forward to some more trips abroad through your team and shall get in touch accordingly. Thanks Raunak for making our Newzealand trip a memorable one.

    Its time to reflect back and be thankful to the mesmerizing moments which we have gathered just because of 'Raunak' from Wanderbirds and Travel triangle. Raunak has arranged such an amazing trip for us that he has filled our lives with the merriment moments. He has customized the trip as per our requirements, gave suggestions of what to include and what not to, booking all the activities, flight tickets, internal movements and all stays etc. and everything was simply perfect. He was omnipresent as and when required. He was in constant touch with us during our trip and was ensuring that the day was well spent. The highly appreciating thing was that Raunak has helped us in claiming our insurance even after our trip. He has done the recommendable job. Thanks a lot Raunak from Wanderbirds for planning such an amazing and wonderful trip.
