Mount Dandenong Arboretum (Mount Dandenong)



Mount Dandenong Arboretum extends over sixteen hectares and was set aside in 1928 to establish an arboretum of national significance featuring conifers and deciduous trees.

The collection includes spectacular trees from around the world including eight that are listed in the National Trustís significant tree register. Since 1999 the Arboretum has gradually focussed the collection on southern hemisphere conifers.

Things to do include:
  • Enjoy a relaxing sensory experience of walking under mature tree canopies, scrunching on aromatic pine needles and looking upward through branches to the sky.
  • Picnic in the meadow with views to the Great Dividing Range framed by tall trees.
  • Walk up to Mount Dandenong Observatory for the spectacular view east across the city of Melbourne or walk along one of the many tracks in the Dandenong Ranges National Park trail network.
