Fodor's Review

This lookout at the top of Mt. Dandenong has breathtaking views over Melbourne to the Mornington Peninsula and Port Phillip Bay. You can picnic or barbecue on the grounds, eat at the bistro (lunch and dinner), or stroll along the pleasant English Garden Walk while the kids get lost in the hedge maze. Other fun attractions include a Wishing Tree and the Giant's Chair.
