Dandenong Ranges Tourist Track

Natural Attractions

The Dandenong Ranges Tourist Track passes through fern-filled gullies, eucalypt covered ridges and over numerous bridges and boardwalks.

The walk is graded moderate to easy with some undulating terrain and some steeper sections including stairs up to the back road at Emerald. The Sassafras end starts behind the Community Hall.

Edwardian Victorians would visit the Dandenong Ranges in their thousands during Summer to escape the heat. Secions of this track was – and still is – extremely popular and easily accessible by public transport.

Along the way, you can see Mountain Ash, Manna Gum, Mountain Grey Gum, Messmate (eucalypt) trees, Soft and Rough Tree ferns, Common Maidenhair, Rasp Fern and the King Fern. If you keep your eyes open and look up into the trees, you can also see Laughing Kookaburras, Crimson and Eastern Rosellas, King parrots and Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos and the Superb Lyrebird.
