Overview

Scenic attractions in the Dandenong Ranges

You'd be excused for thinking every part of the photogenic Dandenong Ranges is a scenic attraction, but make a beeline for some real standouts to overwhelm the senses.

Blooming gardens

The magnificent gardens of the Ranges are at their best in spring when the flowers burst into bloom. Smell the rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and daffodils in the National Rhododendron Gardens, or the sea of tulips at Tesselaar Tulip Farm.

Watch the colours turn in the Alfred Nicholas Gardens, and find the clay sculptures hiding in the tranquil William Ricketts Sanctuary.

Dandenong Ranges National Park

Marvel at the forests of mountain ash and the plunging fern gullies. Listen out for the intriguing and elusive lyrebird as you walk through the beautiful woodlands to the thundering Sherbrooke Falls.

Panoramic views

Drive the 30-kilometre Mount Dandenong Tourist Road. Stop at the lookout at Kalorama for a view of the Warburton Ranges and Silvan Reservoir, or head off Ridge Road to the Mount Dandenong Observatory for stunning views of the city, particularly at night.
