Mount Dandenong Arboretum

Established in 1928, the Mount Dandenong Arboretum was created for the purpose of preserving conifers and deciduous trees that have environmental significance.

At the outset, plants initially received at the arboretum were graciously donated by the Australian horticultural community to advance the great strides made in Australia’s conservation efforts. Many decades later, the arboretum has grown in leaps and bounds and contains some of the most dazzling tree species from around the world. Eight of these species have been included in the register of significant trees by the National Trust.

Mount Dandenong Arboretum Park, Gardens, Address, Hours & Map, Vic

Whether it is taking a leisure walk under the canopies of the towering trees, looking up to the light as it peers through the leaves, or simply sitting in the meadow to read through a favourite book, the arboretum is a tranquil place to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax in a quiet environment.

Nothing beats a picnic in the meadow as friends share late brunch, whilst being treated to spectacular views of the Great Dividing Range. There are numerous walking trails where visitors can catch a breath of fresh air and the Mount Dandenong Observatory offers stunning views of Melbourne’s skyline. It is the perfect location to watch the sun set over the picturesque Dandenong Ranges.
