Explore the Dandenong Ranges
A short cruise in your Thrifty hire car from Melbourne will bring you to Mount Dandenong known for its rolling hills, lush forests, scenic drives and small villages with friendly locals.
The Dandenong Ranges National Park
There's plenty to see and do in the Dandenong Ranges National Park, including walking the countless tracks that wind through the exquisite bushland, eating at the Sky High restaurant at the peak and cooking up some lunch at the many picnic and BBQ spots.
While in the area make sure you take a ride on the heritage Puffing Billy steam engine that runs from Belgrave to Gembrook.
Cruise to nearby towns
If you have a bit of extra time up your sleeve enjoy a breezy drive through beautiful landscape to the nearby towns of Olinda, Kalorama and the famous Yarra Valley, the oldest wine region in Victoria with an incredible 80 vineyards.
The Yarra Valley has countless activities including hot air ballooning above the picturesque landscape, the Healesville Sanctuary home to native Australian animals like the wallaby and platypus and the local Seville Water Park.
