    Probably the most serene and lively forests in the whole of Victoria, the Dandenong Ranges National Park is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy the environment. While making sure to protect the wildlife and forests, this national park offers visitors the best place to enjoy a picnic and to stroll around the panoramic view.

    Here the best things to do:


    1. Having a picnic nearby Sherbrooke Forest – a wide area where you can sit beside plants and animals, accompanying by a walking track. It is the largest area of the national park. It takes about an hour’s walk to get here from O ‘Donohue Picnic Ground.

    2. Going for a bush nature walk – spend about an hour and half walking around Ferntree Gully to walkthrough the bushlands and eucalyptic trees to listen and see what goes on in the forest.

    3. Go for a bike ride – the best thing about this particular national park is you’re allowed to bring your bike along to ride everywhere and feel the breeze while enjoying the environment.

    How to get there?
    By train: You may take the train to Belgrave Station or Upper Ferntree Gully Station.
    By car: You may drive towards the Burwood Highway or Canterbury Road for an hour till you get there.
