Dandenong Ranges National Park, Dandenong
The lush Dandenong Ranges National Park provide an ideal escape from urban Melbourne. Among these low mountains--which rise to 633 m (2,076 ft)--you'll find a dense temperate rainforest of towering mountain ash trees. Colorful with flowers in spring, deep green in summer, and occasionally snow-dusted in winter, the area offers numerous activities and charming villages. Head to SkyHigh atop Mount Dandenong for views back to Melbourne. Stop and smell the flowers at the National Rhododendron Gardens or hike through dense stands of soaring mountain ash trees in Sherbrooke Forest. Wander around the shops and galleries in Olinda, Belgrave, and Sassafras. If you want to spend a night or two, reserve a cottage or guesthouse nestled in the woods near one of the area's friendly towns.

I visited the Dandenong Botanic Garden with 3 friends in mid May and we had wonderful time there. First, the walking routes in the garden is well structured. It's very nice to explore different sectio... more »
丹頓農山脈位於墨爾本近郊，這裡在以前是一個林場，所以有小火車運送林木，當時的伐木工為了讓火車車廂裡可以多載一些木材所以乘坐火車都是坐在窗戶同時腳伸出車廂外，時至今日小火車不再載運木材，而是載運遊客徜徉山林，本來這個小火車有開放遊客像當年的伐木工一樣坐在窗戶上，但這一兩年有汽車撞上小火車發生車禍，為了遊客的安全管理單位便禁止了這項行為。 通常來坐小火車的時候都會搭乘到古老的蒸氣火車頭，很有特色，可惜... more »Mount Danton is located in the outskirts of Moburn, which used to be a forest, so there are small fires to send trees, and when the loggers can get more wood in the fire, so the fire rides are sitting in the window at the same time, and the small fire is no longer wood, but the mountain forest, This small fire has a porter sitting on a window like a logger of the year, but this year a car hit the small fire, for the safety management of the customer to prohibit this line. Usually to sit in the small fire time will ride to the old steaming fire, very characteristic, but I came to the day is not very good, ink ben over 40 degrees, in order to prevent forest fires, small fire instead of diesel, unfortunately. In addition, many shops, flowers are also because of the high parking and opening, so this trip to Danlushan a lot of things are empty.
I loved being with nature and this is the best in the east where you can spend relaxing time by yourself or with a family. There are other things to do within the region like walking up on 1000 steps which will take you over an hour, take a sip of your favourite coffee in the local cafe shops, and take a glimpse of the overlooking at the sky restaurant especially on sunset
Absolutely beautiful walk. Was a great way to escape the city for a while and walk with nature. Tracks are fairly well kept and not too steep if you know people who struggle with hills. We went in the afternoon and it was just perfect seeing the sun shine through the trees!
