Visit the Dandenong Ranges its 10 deg cooler

This heat is pretty oppressive in Melbourne with all the concrete and bitumen,. but it is cooler in the mountains, with the streams, tall trees and fresh air.  We are only 50 mins from the Melbourne CBD and there are so many beautiful places to visit.  Check out the Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges information on our website under Local Attractions.  You can see just how beautiful it is here.  Most wineries have air conditioning, we have the Olinda Creek in Mt. Evelyn with childrens play area and plenty of shade.  Lilydale Lake has a beach for sun baking and the children can observe the bird nesting area

The Blue Lotus Farm in Yarra Junction is now open for just a short time from Boxing Day 26 December to March 31st.  This is such a special place and will take your breath away with its amazing waterlillies and Monet bridges.  There is also a cafe overlooking one of the many lakes and gift shop selling ladies fashion plus many lovely topical gifts featuring water lillies.

We are happy to offer advice to anyone needing more information.
