Dandenong Ranges National Park, Dandenong

4.8
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.
