The Charm of Dandenong Ranges

An Unforgettable Family Adventure

If the constant drumming of city life has been echoing in your ears a touch too long, an escape to the verdant folds of the Dandenong Ranges might be the melodic interlude you and your family need. The Dandenongs, with their lush landscapes and myriad experiences, offer the perfect backdrop for a memorable family holiday. Let’s explore why, shall we?

The Dandenongs: A Symphony of Experiences

Family holidays in the Dandenong Ranges are not just vacations but experiences that shape memories. It’s about that quiet anticipation as you set off on a trail, the shared laughter over a picnic, and the collective gasps as a lyrebird takes flight. It’s about discovering the wonders of nature together, sparking curiosity in young minds, and reigniting it in older ones.

A Playground for the Adventurous

There’s never a dull moment in the Dandenongs. The region is crisscrossed with walking trails that invite you to explore and discover. You could meander through the Rhododendron Gardens or take on the famous 1000 Steps. Sherbrooke Forest’s towering mountain ash trees and lush fern gullies are a nature lover’s dream. If you’re lucky, you can spot a wallaby or two or be serenaded by the call of the lyrebirds!

For a different perspective, hop onto Puffing Billy, one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world. As the charming steam train chugs through the picturesque landscapes, you’ll be treated to some of the most stunning views the Dandenongs offer.

The Dandenongs also offer a delightful array of quaint villages, each with unique charm. With its tea rooms and antique stores, Sassafras is perfect for a leisurely afternoon. Just a short drive away, you’ll find Olinda, another charming village known for its lush gardens, art galleries, and boutique shops. And if you happen to be in these parts in autumn, the explosion of colours is an absolute treat!

A Stone’s Throw from Melbourne

One of the best things about the Dandenongs is its proximity to Melbourne. Just an hour’s drive and the city’s concrete greys give way to the ranges’ vibrant greens. It’s close enough for a weekend getaway yet far enough to feel like a real escape.
