Enjoy Summer in the Cool Dandenong Ranges

DSC03784 Enjoy one of the many gardens in the Dandenong Ranges, only 30 km east of Melbourne CBD. The Alfred Nicholas Memorial Garden is in Sherbrooke and is very popular for wedding photos.  You can enjoy a picnic here and there are lovely open spaces for the family to enjoy with a gazebo for shade.  The gardens are next to Shannon Bennett’s The Piggery so take time to enjoy some delicious food.

Summer in the Yarra Valley


Yet Another Beautiful Attraction to visit in the Yarra Valley, Coombe Farm  which was the home of Dame Nellie Melba, the famous opera singer.  There is so much to see and do in this beautiful Region.  Make sure you spend at least a weekend here.  You can take a tour of the beautiful garden with a delicious Devonshire Tea, or taste wine from the Coombe Farm Winery, or dine in the beautiful Dining Room overlooking the swimming pool and beyond the Yarra Valley.  Take a Break, you deserve it!
