I have lived in the Dandenong Ranges all of my life and this was my first visit! I can't believe I waited this long. I went with my very inquisitive and talkative 7 year old daughter. We were greeted by a very friendly lady at the entrance that happily chatted and answered miss 7's questions. The Sanctuary itself is spectacular, beautiful sculptures set amongst sky scraping gums and gorgeous ferns. I am looking forward to coming back in winter when the fog will make it a magical and mysterious outing.

A tranquil setting for beautiful sculptures amongst the tree ferns and eucalypts. A great place to bring overseas visitors.
