Dandenong Ranges National Park

The Dandenong Ranges has fabulous accommodation ranging from vintage caravans to cosy cottages and luxury homes. There are excellent cafes, an eclectic range of shops, famous attractions like Puffing Billy, world-class gardens… and so much more…

The most famous walk in the Dandenongs would have to be the 1000 Steps at the base of the Dandenong Ranges, it attracts thousands of visitors each month and is a well-known fitness challenge. The walk is stunning and should be done at a slower pace to be fully appreciated. Signage along the way tells the story of the historic Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea.
