There is no entrance fee, no seating, and definitely no food service, but that's the best thing about it. It's just you and the best views you'll find from any point on the Dandenong Ranges. Pull up a rock, and relax.
The only tricky part is finding it. Driving south along Mount Dandenong Tourist Road, you'll need to turn right on to Ridge Road. Continue alone this road, going past the two entrances to Observatory Road. You'll soon come across this small dirt parking area on the right. Leave your car here, and it's time for a stroll.
Just meters from your car you'll find yourself on the Glasgow Track, which will lead you to an intersection. Pick one of the two tracks to the left - don't worry, they'll both take you to the same spot. The lower track will require a little bit of hill side scrambling, while the higher (Kyeema Track) is level.
Within five minutes the trees will clear and you'll be out in the open, with a steep, rocky drop off in front of you, and one stunning view .
From your 600 meter perch over the eastern suburbs, you should be able to see as far as the city, and Port Phillip Bay. And on a crystal clear day you may even be able to spot Mt Macedon far in the West.
The lights at night are also incredible, stretching out like a web into the blackness.
If you're after a romantic sunset with a special someone, or just a little head space away from the craziness of the working week, Poor Man's Sky High is the spot for you. It may just become your favourite little hideaway.
