“Grants Picnic Ground is an accessible destination in the Sherbrooke section of Dandenong Ranges National Park.
The Dandenong Ranges is a rainforest getaway on Melbourne’s doorstep. A short drive or train ride from the city you will find steep volcanic hills covered in stands of the world’s tallest flowering tree, the Mountain Ash.”
Dandenong Ranges National Park is part of an Aboriginal cultural landscape. Parks Victoria respects the deep and continuing connection that Traditional Owners have to these lands and waters, and we recognise their ongoing role in caring for Country.
