Appreciate the autumnal splendour of the season in the Dandenong Ranges. Although we aren't all able to wander the gardens and the forests this season, we can take vivid strolls in our imaginations with the help of some stunning scenic photography.

And one thing we know for sure. Autumn will return next year...and so will we.

The quintessential country lane and a moment to sit and wonder

Possibly one of the Dandenong Ranges most photographed scenes - the Boat Shed at Alfred Nicholas Gardens

Form and beauty give a sculptural quality to the gardens at Cloudehill

Golden glow - the sunset brings even greater depth to the slow turning leaves 

When the vintage is harvested, the vines take time to shed their leaves and relax after a job well done

Please check the current notices regarding travel and permissable activity before venturing out. For a comprehensive list of park closures, visit the Parks Victoria website.
