Although it is not that far to drive, it feels as if you are very far from the city. We visited the Dandenongs as part of a city tour. The forests are quite something to see, and there are many different birds, which one can actually feed if you want to.
We had Aussie billy tea, crackers with vegemite and lamingtons for tea break. The tour did feel a bit rushed. We could only spend about 20 min looking around, and less than 5 minutes at the lookout. But it was still worth the effort! As one leave Melbourne Central you get a better idea of the size of this city.
