Dandenong’s ancient Aboriginal origins are a world apart from the modern business parks, large urban shopping malls and major sporting venues which characterise the suburb today. This dynamic town is situated picturesquely in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, meaning that guests at this Hot Rate hotel are only ever a matter of minutes from some of Victoria’s most beautiful countryside. The Thomas P Carroll Reserve, the Melbourne Water Wetlands and the Dandenong Police Paddock Reserve located along the Dandenong Creek all feature an abundance of local wildlife, magnificent natural vistas and opportunities for mountain cycling and nature trail walking. There are also numerous acclaimed golf courses in the local area, including Tirhatuan Lakes Public Golf Course and the Spring Valley Golf Club.
Tourists hoping to do some sightseeing in Melbourne’s cosmopolitan centre can catch a train from the nearby Dandenong station right into the city’s historic heart. From the Royal Exhibition Building and the Melbourne Museum, to the vibrant streets of Chinatown and the iconic Victoria Harbour. After a day checking out the many visitor attractions and landmarks, Melbourne’s Docklands area is a favourite for those seeking to experience the city’s lively nightlife scene due to the number of upmarket wine bars, sophisticated al fresco restaurants and popular nightclubs.
Those holidaying with children will enjoy the number of family-orientated attractions located in Melbourne’s city centre.
