Dandenong Market

Known as the "cook's market", Dandenong Market is a 150-year old traditional working market in Melbourne's South East. A mecca for fresh produce and hard-to-find ingredients, Dandenong Market attracts over 5 million visitors a year who seek out authentic, fresh produce. With over 200 market traders spread out over 8000 square metres, Dandenong Market offers everything from honeycomb fresh from the beehive, to flowers cut straight from the farm, to apples picked from the orchard. A busy and bustling market full of sights and delights, Dandenong Market offers a taste for every season and a treasure in every stall.

Have been going to this market off and on for many, many years. Have seen many changes between visits but still a great market. Has all your fresh fruit and veg as well was plants and flowers. Great eatery and still great hot jam donuts. Has typical Melbourne market feel and interesting array of clothing, shoes, jewellery and much more. Well worth a visit.

Grants Picnic Ground

Reviewed By Foot-Soldier-4 - Hong Kong, China

We did some nice walk into the woods and had fun feeding the cockatoos. But…
1] As other reviewers have pointed out, signage is lacking and directions unclear along the trails. We had to keep asking other fellow hikers to make sure we’re on the right track. And, luckily, Google map was still functional even in the woods
2] If you only want a close encounter with the wild birds, you don’t really have to pay to feed them. Just cross the road, right in front of the café, there’s a patch of wood where we saw tens of birds gathering & resting, with not a bit of fear even after we’ve gotten next to them.
3] We also did the Sherbrooke Falls Walk but it’s a shame that there’s no view to the falls at all. The vegetable has over-grown & all the view was blocked over there.

It is very difficult to find a place where one can have defensive driving techniques , participate in the race programs etc . Although it is closed for most part of the year , as per the calendar , the race course is open for the events .
Good Race Course and is very much accessible by car as well as by public transport as it located on the Dandedong - Melbourne H.W .
It is a boon for people who would like to learn the basics of driving as well as the basics of racing .

Heritage Hill Museum and Historic Gardens

Reviewed By Steph_and_Jox - Melbourne, Australia

We visited Heritage Hill to attend an exhibition opening. We were surprised to find such a serene place nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of central Dandenong! The main homestead, built in the 1930s, has been beautifully preserved and acts as both a gallery space and a house museum. We took a wander around the property and spent most of our time enjoying the amazing rose Gardens - definitely the highlight of our visit. More people need to know about Dandenong's best kept secret!
