Follow the scenic winding roads and discover the wonderful villages and communities scattered amongst the trees in the hills of the Dandenong Ranges. Wide cobbled footpaths and carefully curated window displays run either side of the streets. Dappled light filtered through the windows in tucked away artist studios. Sip tea in a quaint tearoom or indulge in a latte in front of a crackling fire. Fossick through the antique and craft stores and maybe even find the old record or the china plate you've been on the hunt for.
