Enjoy a day in the Dandenongs
With the Dandenong Ranges just a 30-minutes drive away, there are plenty of fun ways to spend some wholesome hours with your family.
Explore over 200 vendors of fresh produce, fish, baked goods and street food at the Dandenong Market, open every Tuesday and Friday to Sunday. Located in the heart of town, the marketplace is a cultural hotspot that you’re sure to enjoy perusing (with a steaming coffee in hand of course).
If you love a good hike, you’re in the right place. The Dandenong Ranges has an abundance of forest walks to get your heart pumping. Along the way, enjoy exciting wildlife sightings of little lyrebirds and wallabies. Climb the infamous 1000 steps at Kokoda Track Memorial Walk or take it easy on the Sherbrooke Falls hike.
When it comes time for a snack, you can’t skip Miss Marple’s Tearoom. Pop your name on the waiting list while you wander the shops, then sit down for a decadent high tea that will transport you straight into the heart of a quaint English village.
Experience all this and more at the Dandenong Ranges, just a 30-minute drive from home.
