Marvel at the Dandenongs, a retreat away from the vibrant pulse of Melbourne. Mount Dandenong is the highest peak here, overlooking a patchwork landscape of countryside villages and quaint wineries. Ready for a break? Kick back and relax with tea and scones in one of the many hillside cafes or wander through the historic towns that are lined with cute boutiques and family-run eateries.
Don’t miss Puffing Billy, a historic steam train that winds its way through the spectacular forest of the Dandenongs from Belgrave. A ride on this train is an adventure through time, fun for adults and children.
