Walks in Dandenong Ranges

The forested slopes of the Dandenong Ranges provide a serene setting for forest walks, charming hilltop towns, and an array of fascinating animals such as lyrebirds and wallabies. Visitors can explore the famous 1000 Steps, discover Olinda Falls, and marvel at the breathtaking views of Melbourne and the Yarra Valley. This rainforest retreat is located just a short drive or train ride from the city, with steep volcanic hills covered in the world's tallest flowering tree, the Mountain Ash.
