SkyHigh Mount Dandenong Reviews
A really great place to take in the surrounding views. A short relaxing drive from the CBD. Well worth the visit more »
Paying $7 a car just to view over Melbourne suburbs is just plain money-grubbing. Would begrudgingly pay $7 if l could be guaranteed a clear view. The day we came with interstate visitors was overcast... more »
Sky High is set amongst the stunning forest of Mt Dandenong, with forest walks available, a gorgeous restaurant, high tea, and a neat little cafe. I feel like a little more attention could be given to the cafe/bar- with a little refurbishment it could look spectacular. It was a touch dated. Perhaps to encourage people to eat at the more expensive restaurant? The view when we went was a little poor, with visibility being extremely low. I've been before at night and....wow. To -all- travellers, go when you can see the night lights of Melbourne. That view is breathtaking. As you can see from the photo- going during a warm day produces a nice "Smog" view of our growing city. The seven dollar entry charge is a little ridiculous. I think with the amount of cars that come through you could easily hit a three dollar/five dollar entry fee. Especially since the maze is also charged to visit. Make sure you read the story of the Wishing Tree and make a wish in the Wishing Well! It's worth the drive- just do go at night, bring some change, and get ready to walk.
We live on the hill and love to take friends and family to SkyHigh, or just go ourselves. Sometimes it's just for coffee and cake, or for a casual meal in the cafe, but we've also dined upstairs. This time we had a very enjoyable breakfast taking in the views from a window seat. Booking, reminders, and service on the day were all great. The gardens and setting is amazing. Thanks.
