The Villages of Mt Dandenong are unique in Victoria and you’ll see why as soon as you start to ascend the mountain.

The concrete of Melbourne is suddenly replaced by lush greenery, rain forest, towering mountain ashes, giant tree ferns and in Spring a wonderful array of colour. Along the ridge of the mountain there are three main villages, Mount Dandenong, Olinda and Sassafras all within 2km of each other.

In these Villages you’ll find Unique Speciality Shops, Restaurants and Boutique Accommodation. Surrounding the Villages are beautifully manicured gardens, stunning view points and the crispness of the mountain air will ensure that you leave us feeling revitalised and energised to take on the city again.

Explore what the Villages have to offer and build your itinerary as you go. When finished you can print your itinerary or email it to yourself for reference.

Only 1 hour from Melbourne on top of a lush green mountain. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
