Dandenong Ranges National Park


Australia's state of Victoria is home to the Dandenong Ranges National Park, a protected region. The park, over 3,500 hectares, is renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, varied animals, and rich cultural legacy.

The impressive mountain range from which the park derives its name is one of its most remarkable characteristics. Mountain Ash woods, fern valleys, and waterfalls may all be abundant in the Dandenong Ranges. Hiking, picnics, birding, and scenic driving are just a few of the outdoor pursuits that park visitors may engage in.

The William Ricketts Sanctuary, which houses a collection of sculptures drawn from the natural environment and Aboriginal culture, is one of the park's many notable cultural landmarks. Guests may tour the sanctuary and discover more about the artist's respect for indigenous traditions and connection to the earth.

The Puffing Billy Steam Railway, which offers guests a picturesque ride through the Dandenong Ranges, is another well-liked item in the park. A historic railway from the early 1900s, the train provides a unique opportunity to take in the park's breathtaking scenery and unspoilt beauty.

Various fauna may be found in the Dandenong Ranges National Park, including wallabies, echidnas, wombats, and more than 160 birds. In addition, visitors may explore the park's many habitats and discover the value of environmental sustainability and conservation.

The park also has several walking routes, from quick strolls to longer, more difficult excursions. For example, the well-known 1000 Steps Kokoda Walk is a strenuous but rewarding journey that leads tourists up a steep ascent of 1000 steps while retracing the steps of World War II soldiers who trained on the Kokoda Trail.
