Things to See and Do in Dandenong

While Dandenong is known as a commercial and industrial area, there's a lot more to this quaint spot than meets the eye and nature lovers are sure to have a blast.

Shop up a storm at Lonsdale Street, enjoy delicious Afghan and Indian food along Thomas Street and visit the historical Dandenong Town Hall. Also make sure you cruise to the nearby Churchill National Park, the National Rhododendron Gardens, William Ricketts Sanctuary and the Dandenong Ranges National Park to see the natural beauty of the area. And keep your eyes peeled for wallabies and kangaroos!

If you've got a bit of time up your sleeve, shift gears in your Thrifty hire car to the nearby Yarra Valley rated as one of the World's best wine and food regions. Enjoy a truly unique holiday experience by hot air ballooning above the nearby Yarra Valley, to get a great view of the breathtaking landscape.

After a short stay in Dandenong and surrounds you'll feel invigorated and ready to tackle your next big project or job. If you are looking for more ideas on road trips in Australia, check out our Travel Blog.
