Fantastic afternoon tea! Visited on a quiet Sunday afternoon with my 2 young children. Staff were lovely. Family friendly restaurant. Views were lovely. We visited the maze and the gardens before we sat down for tea. Great way to spend the afternoon with the family!

Visited the sky high last week and the views were spectacular. Good value at 6$ per car and place is very well maintained. Love local so would love to come back here for sunset!

Took interstate friends To this lookout last Friday. Paid our $6.00 to get in and couldn't see a thing. We were actually in the clouds. Very disappointed that they would take our money when they knew this. Probably won't go again. Will find somewhere else. Have been up here many times and usually the view is spectacular.

A neat discovery where you can see the mountains, past the city, if you had a nice clear day. Unfortunately we didn't but still good nonetheless. There were other things on site such as the giants chair, sculptures, walks, secret garden etc. There was a bistro but a little expensive. There was also a function room. Yes, you had to... More

Happened to be in the area, having driven 2 hours from a regional city. Thought we'd have a look at the view from the top of Mt Dandenong only to find this place squatting on the summit and demanding a $6 entry fee just to get in! Incensed, we turned around and left. We may well have spent more than... More

Beautiful location and the cafe has a fantastic view of the city. A couple of very pleasant walks, but if you are looking for a day out don't plan to spend a day here. The cafe/bistro is overpriced and the other 'attractions' take about 30 seconds to see, despite being given the sense they are an attraction in their own... More

We had not planned to go to this place, we just reached here by chance, and thankfully we had cash to pay the $6 entry fee. Our 8 yr old was excited to know about the maze, and loved the Giant's chair. The maze has a separate entry fee of $6 per person, its fun for little kids , though... More

Beautiful scenery, but yeah. Make sure you have a few bucks spare to get in. You will have to pay in order to receive entry. I'd prefer if access would be granted without any fees. But hey, that's just me.

The rather obstructed view in just one direction is not that impressive unless the weather is really good. Otherwise the whole facility is not too interesting, but it has toilets and a bus stop for 688 and 694 to bring you back to train stations. You can have the same or better views from nearby Kyeema track too.

We arrived at 5pm on a cold spring evening, hoping to catch the sunset. But the skies were overcast; no sunset for us. It was a nice relaxing place nevertheless. Just that I will be careful to check the weather forecast the next time I visit.
