We enjoyed the gardens but thought that some of the gardens run by Parks Victoria were better and were free. Staff in gardens and shop very nice but would not go back to seasons restaurant

On the recommendation of a friend we visited Cloudehill. Lovely manicured gardens with some unique flowers not seen anywhere else in Victoria - interesting art work. The shop and nursery have a nice selection of plants and seeds to choose from. We left with some...More

I live at the foot of the mountain and cannot think of a caravan park that would suit, although many B&Bs in close proximity at various prices. Mt Dandenong is best suited to day tripping and Cloudehill is great for lunch... More
