They have more car park space than gardens. Went and the secret garden was closed but still take $7 and do not tell you that it was closed. Then you have to pay an additional $7 per person to do the maze. The view is...More

We arrived at sky view and paid the $7 entry fee per car. It was only when we got inside that we found out it was an additional $7 per person to enter the maze inside the grounds... slightly less for a family ticket. We...More

Well maintained gardens and look out. Go on a clear day for amazing views. There was an restaurant but it was overflowing with Sunday diners so we went elsewhere. Plenty of parking available and lots of bus groups. Small cost to enter the area. Go...More

This is a definite must-see if you are visiting Melbourne. As a resident, I tend to visit here a couple of times a year. There is a cafe with outdoor tables, a restaurant (which I always book), beautiful gardens and a hedge maze. You can...More

At an elevation of 630 metres, it provides a good view of the surrounding area, including the skyline of Melbourne in the distance. An A$7 entry fee per car and ample parking in the half a dozen parking areas, but disabled access easiest from carparks...More

We waited for a few minutes while the waiter fiddled with the music. Not a great start to be ignored. At the entrance/bar there were 3 people having what looked like a staff meeting! Very unprofessional. The booking had been made for 6 people and...More

$7 per car to access. For this you'd think they'd provide a clean toilet with soap and a working hand dryer, but no. I'm surprised they charge for car access I'd think they'd make enough money from the cafes, or the over-priced, very small kids...More

It is a nice stop over place to look out Melbourne city from above. This place has a bit of playground for kids and restaurant. It is worth a visit if we are around mount dandenong area.

After driving to the top of the mountain we were left with no choice than to pay an entry fee, just to look at the view. We had a snack lunch in the Cafe and it was OK
