Many of Melbourne’s highlights are near to Sassafras, so it is a convenient place to base yourself. Two attractions that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Dandenong Ranges National Park and the iconic Alfred Nicolas Gardens. Also, be sure to check out the National Rhododendron Gardens and the Grants Picnic Area.
If the weather is good head outside and enjoy the nearby green spaces. Enjoy the native flora and fauna, by heading to the SkyHigh Mount Dandenong in Mount Dandenong, Sherbrooke Forest in Belgrave and the Police Paddocks Reserve in Dandenong.
Those travelling without kids will love an afternoon or night out at the Payne's Rise Wines in Seville.
