Nature takes centre stage throughout the region. Take the time to be in the outdoors and feel the difference. Explore the magnificent private gardens open to the public such as Alowyn Gardens or the memorable Coombe – The Melba Estate, the former home to world famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba. Picnics can be the ultimate in a family day out or an intimate day for two to reconnect and wash the worries of the week away. Wander the grounds of Maroondah Dam park and enjoy the roses, rest in an historic rotunda or find yourself on a rug under the branches of a magnificent sprawling tree. Fresh air, stunning views, amazing wildlife and spectacular gardens all make for an entirely wonderful adventure.
