A dreamy morning spent mountain-top is the perfect way to enjoy a weekend. In fact, sometimes I flirt with the idea of actually living on Mount Dandenong. How different the crisp morning air would feel and how close you could be to the endless expanses of forest and parks excites me to no end. The only thing stopping me is the drive up and down the mountain and what a lifestyle change it would be. For now, I think I’ll stick to being a visitor of the area and oh what a beautiful area it is to visit.

If you’re not from Melbourne, Dandenong Ranges is a popular area of low mountains frequented by both tourists and locals due to its convenient distance from the city. If you’re looking for somewhere to explore, The Alfred Nicholas Memorial Garden is a nice place to start. It’s spectacular in Autumn with its overhanging trees and burnt orange filled paths. The highlight of the garden is the iconic boathouse that reflects so perfectly on the lake – a magically serene place to explore and adventure with the camera.

    I never would have guessed this location was close to the city! I’d definitely go a ton if I lived in Melbourne. I love how you can always manage to dress up a bit but still look so comfy!

    This place is beautiful. I wish there were more gardens like this over my way. You definitely wouldn’t think that this place was in Australia!

      I know what you mean! Such a magical place when it turns golden, the boat house is a little surprise, I never expected to find one on top of a mountain
