Only one hour drive from Melbourne, Mt Dandenong area feels a world away from the busy and fast-paced city. The landscape here is a patchwork of exotic and native flora with a lush understorey of tree ferns. Driving through the narrow winding mountain road (esp. in the morning) is a great pleasure, as you breath in the fresh cool air with the spice smell from gumtrees, and perhaps witness some lyrebirds wandering across.
Dandenong range is famous for Puffing Billy, which is the most popular heritage steam train in Australia. However, there are so many more places with different features that are worth seeing. Spend a day and explore with us for some of the best kept secrets areas here that are away from the tourist crowd.

A travel enthusiast, who loves travelling deep into remote corners around the world and live like a local. I love mountains, love outdoor esp. trekking and climbing; have set my feet on mountains in 5 continents and over 40 countries. Drawn to Himalaya and have been trekking into different areas in Himalaya many times. Recently returned back from East African Acacia Savannas, and successfully summited Mount Kilimanjaro – the highest mountain in Africa. I became a freelance tour leader about 5 years ago, specializing leading small groups into less-visited areas around the world. Now starting my own travel company, and hope I can share with more people the amazing places that I’ve visited. I enjoy exploring the wildness in Australia; sometimes I find a spot on the map and simply pack my tent and look for new routes. Thus I’m good at finding unique routes and less-known places in and around Melbourne; such as secret beautiful beaches that you can have for your own, ancient forest with waterfalls, remote forest lakes with all kinds of wildlife, some of the most beautiful mountain road in Australia, and of course areas for different outdoor activities (fishing, rafting, swimming, trekking, camping…).
