You can do so many things when you visit the country-continent of Australia. It is a big island with many different regions inhabited by people of many races.
One great place to explore if you are into the outdoors is the Dandenong Ranges located about 35 kilometers east of Melbourne. It is a scenic collection of low mountain ranges with the highest peak at only 633 meters.
Nature trippers will really enjoy the lush flora in the place. You can go there for a scenic drive around winding paths or have a picnic in one of the areas that are surrounded by trees. Of course, walking and hiking are favorite activities because the air is fresh and the terrain is not too steep.
Nevertheless, the best part is Dandenong Ranges just offers the best natural cycling paths for mountain bikers. Therefore, if you like to get away from the noise and pollution of the city, this forested area would be a lovely respite.
