Having lived in the Dandenong Ranges since mid 1970s we often walked or took the children to Sky High Lookout to see the views. Evening were especially memorable as was the day a dust storm rolled over Melbourne. We felt having to pay for parking,...More

We had our meal at this location and it wasn't as bad as they'd reviewed it. Unfortunately the views were a bit hazy as it had been raining earlier on in the day

On a recent Sunday morning we paid the $7 car entry fee to enter the park. Fantastic views and lovely gardens. Worth the money for the views. Plenty of walks.

Even in the depths of winter, this facility is an awesome option for a senior high school formal. Catered brilliantly for the students’ needs, the atmosphere on the cold, crisp and slightly foggy night was idyllic.
