1. Dandenong Ranges & William Ricketts Sanctuary Tour
You will begin your tour at St. Paul's Cathedral at 10 AM and then travel 45 minutes outside the city into the lush Australian forest. Along the way, spot several quaint villages and lovely gardens, and watch as the city dissolves into thick foliage. Upon arriving at the Dandenong Range, explore William Ricketts Sanctuary. This tranquil forest sanctuary is adorned with sculptures of Aboriginal life. These sculptures form a narrative, which tells the story of Aboriginal culture and spirituality. After exploring the sanctuary, pause to have a wholesome and healthy lunch at a cozy nearby restaurant. Afterwards, your tour will continue with a relaxing walk through a majestic eucalyptus and fern tree forest. Soak in the sights and sounds of nature under the shade of this lush forest canopy. Finally, drive down the mountains back to the city, where you will arrive at 4:30 PM.
