Great Places To Visit - Dandenong Ranges, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Saturday morning the weather was B_E_A_Utiful! So......what to do on a lovely sunny Melbourne weekend. Grand final weekend actually, but we are not footy fans. Gasp, horror, i know, but it's true, we don't like football. So, we decided to take Miss Lily with us and go for a drive in the Dandenong ranges, find a nice little spot for a Devonshire Tea and soak up the beautiful views (if there were any).
Well we found just the spot. A Devonshire Tea and light lunch spot called "Viewpoint." And a lovely view it was. I enjoyed a toasted ham and cheese on multigrain, whilst Bernie enjoyed a Devonshire Tea.  Miss Lily of course enjoyed a snippet of my toastie.  We sat on the verandah, looking across the road at the lookout and beyond to the views of the valley and water below.  Very relaxing.  Warm, balmy spring day, gentle breeze, and no where else we had to be......great.

If you want to find this little spot, Viewpoint, we headed up Burwood Hwy through Upper Ferntree Gully, turned left at the Mt. Dandenong sign and kept going up. It's basically at the top. Afterwards we kept going in the same direction which I think was still called Mt. Dandenong Rd down to Monbulk.  Did a left turn into what became Canterbury Rd and headed for home.  I guess it depends where "home" is for you and how much time you want to spend sight seeing.  We certainly enjoyed our little break and will visit "Viewpoint" again.
