Dandenong Ranges

Immerse yourself in the towering forests, lush gullies and storybook villages of the Dandenong Ranges on a private tour that will enchant and bring you back to nature. The Dandenongs are a set of low mountain ranges that offer some of the best encounters with Australia’s natural environment.

After an invigorating 50-minute drive from Melbourne CBD, we enter this secret world of national parks, gardens and villages and take you on adventure that will leave you smiling for days. Hop aboard the much-loved Puffing Billy – a beautiful, century-old steam train still running on its original track – and soar through the evergreen forests to Menzies Creek. On foot let your curiosities lead the way as we venture into one of the national parks, getting up close and personal with an array of Australian wildlife. There are birds to feed, waterfalls to discover and lots of fresh mountain air to breathe in.

The Dandenongs offer some incredible views of Melbourne city and its surrounds, and our tour guides will make sure you capture the best snaps available. The magic continues to the old-world villages that are hidden amongst the trees. Explore the eclectic retailers and let us introduce you to some of the greatest Australian food (or should we say tucker) and the best English Style Pies around!

Note: This tour can be combined with Yarra Valley Wine Tour or with Penguin Parade Tour. See our special combined tours!
