Ringwood is a great place to stay while you are in Melbourne as many of the city’s most popular attractions are within easy driving distance. The Glen Shopping Centre and the Doncaster Shopping Centre are amongst the many popular destinations in the area. Two other great attractions that are located within a short distance of Ringwood are the SkyHigh Mount Dandenong and the 1000 Steps Kokoda Walk.
To surround yourself with nature, visit the nearby parks and reserves. These are great places to breathe deeply and relax. Hike around in the Dandenong Ranges National Park in Sassafras and Sherbrooke Forest in Belgrave.
If you are ready to grab a bargain, amble through the many stores at the Chadstone Shopping Mall in Malvern East.
The area is the home turf of the much-loved Melbourne Rebels rugby union team in autumn and Melbourne Victory soccer team. Both teams play regular matches at Aami Park. Aami Park also hosts concerts.
Finding somewhere comfortable to base yourself in the Ringwood area is simple. Take your pick from the ibis Melbourne Glen Waverley, the Novotel Melbourne Glen Waverley, or the Best Western Plus The Tudor-Box Hill.
