Come Glamping in the Dandenongs
It's autumn in the hills, which means the colours are starting to show, and it is a fabulous time to visit.

Glamping during autumn is one of the best ways to experience the colours and have a relaxing break at the same time.

By St Michaels Church on the corner of the Tourist Road and Falls Road is a beautiful oak tree, one of the first to change colour in the hills. The nearby Mt Dandenong Arboretum on Ridge Road is another beautiful spot.

Pirianda Gardens is one of the quieter public gardens in the Dandenongs, steep, meandering paths are a joy to walk along and the colours are some of the best to be found.

The Alfred Nicholas Gardens are a favourite with the pretty ornamental lake and boat shed surrounded by maples and stunning colours. It's free to enter and dog-friendly (on leash).

Sherbrooke Road is the best option for anyone wishing to simply drive through the hills and see colour, it's always a lovely spot in Autumn.

Walkers will find great colours along Mathias Track from the Silvan Road end, a favourite spot for photographers. A ramble into the Hamer Arboretum below Woolrich lookout can be included on a walk along Mathias Track.

Autumn also signals the annual Chestnut Festival in Kalorama, on the first Sunday in May. come along and enjoy family fun and roasted chestnuts.

Spend a day or two in the Dandenongs, with miles of walking trails and some of the prettiest autumn displays near Melbourne - it's a wonderful escape.
