Less than an hour drive from Melboune, the Skyhigh Mount Dandenong attracts a lot of locals as well travellers alike. Recently refurbished in 2004, this attraction is actually a complex of viewing platforms, beautiful gardens and walks, a maze, barbecues and picnic areas, a family bistro and a gift shop. From here, one can enjoy stunning panoramic views of Mornington Peninsula across to Port Philip Bay and the You Yang ridges on the Southern horizon. It also has a garden where one can find flowering shrubs, pebbled creek, reflective ponds and a sanctuary for local birds. At last, the best way to enjoy a day here would be to sit on the top and enjoy your brekkie, lunch, dinner or tea.

Skyhigh Mount Dandenong Reviews & Ratings
Attended the Xmas in July lunch on a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon. The lunch was made all the nicer with a wonderful and abundant buffet selection. The cold food was excellent and constantly replenished. There was a good variety of hot food including the traditional roasts. However, the turkey was a bit dry and the curry would have been good if it was not burned. The waiting staff were all great, very attentive, friendly and assisted efficiently with our questions about the lunch. Will definitely return there again.
We attended the father's day buffet lunch and it was fantastic. Heaps of seafood and other foods. Wait staff were friendly and views fantastic. We had a lovely day. Could not fault anything. Highly recommended.
Nice ambience for morning tea and there is a nice garden for you to walk around. Unfortunately the weather is cloudy else I can take more photo for the nice city view! I will visit here again :)
Been here few times. Enjoyed the views as you can watch the city from afar above and it's beautiful. There's a beautiful garden too with colorful plants, you'll enjoy here with family day trip. Everything is so chilled and relaxing. Good parking space. .
Good place to visit. You can see Melbourne city skyline from the top of the mountain. There is a huge chair. You can walk at the mountain through the bush and woods. You will observe beautiful flat suburban areas from top. Can watch beautiful birds as well. Good place for hiking
