Dandenong is a place where modern conveniences mix well with nature. It's part of the Melbourne metropolitan area, and accessible by rail, if you want to pick up your hire car and start road-tripping further from the city bustle. Dandenong is known for its diverse cultures, fantastic shopping precincts, historic sights and impressive sporting venues.
The suburb lies 30 km car rental drive southeast of Melbourne's central business district. It's hailed as one the largest and fastest growing parts of Melbourne, while retaining its heritage and natural attractions. It has well-established Indian and Afghan precincts, with an Afghan Bazaar on Thomas Street. Visit Heritage Hill, where three beautifully restored historic buildings sit in two acres of landscaped gardens.
Use Dandenong as a base to explore the Dandenong Ranges to the east, or the beaches and wine country of the Mornington Peninsula to the south. The famous Puffing Billy steam train that visits the highlights of the Dandenong ranges leaves from Belgrave, a 30 minute drive from Dandenong town.
