Activities | The Observatory - SkyHigh
At SkyHigh Mount Dandenong you will get some perspective and escape the noise and pressures of the concrete jungle. Less than an hour from the Melbourne city centre you can be SkyHigh, on the uppermost reach of the Dandenong Ranges, amid cool fern glades and lush towering native forest, looking at the big picture, from the Mornington Peninsula across the majestic sweep of Port Phillip Bay, surrounded by Melbourne's growing urban fringes, to the You Yangs on the southern horizon.
After sunset the southern sky, brilliant in the clear mountain night, is imitated by a spectacular carpet of twinkling lights.
Enjoy the unparalleled vista from the SkyHigh Bistro or fire up a public barbecue; spread a rug and picnic on the elevated viewing terrace.
SkyHigh Mount Dandenong has something for the whole family including English garden, Australiana Tree, Percy Possums House, Giant's Chair and a hedged Maze for you and the kids to get lost in. There are nearby trail walks in the Dandenong Ranges, National Park, Wishing tree and the Arthur Streaton Monument.
