Dandenong Ranges

Dandenong Ranges

Adventure Experience

Experience Overview

It's hard to believe in less than 60 minutes you can be exploring the natural beauty of the Dandenong Ranges and this trail gives you all the forrest feels in what we describe as a 'global adventure'. Weaving our way through the RJ Hammer Arboretum which showcases the exotic forests of North America, Europe and Japan, it literally feels like you're hiking around the world on one trail. With a hike distance of approximately 11kms, this trail starts off with a gentle downhill slope and finishes with some steady but challenging climbs at the end. With the right support and guidance we think it’s achievable for most moderate levels of fitness.

Stunning Rain Forests

This hidden gem has all the rain forest vibes and more shades of green than you can poke a stick at so have your instagram ready to go

Adventurer Experience

If you're exercising a few times each week this is a great way to get outside with hiking distances of 8kms to 11kms. There will be some tough sections to get the heart rate going but we'll support you all the way.

I had the most amazing adventure with a great group of people hiking around the Dandenong Ranges. Big thank you to Kane at Get Outside Melbourne and see you in 2021 for the next hike!

The Dandenong Ranges are on the opposite side of Melbourne to me so the whole area was foreign and exciting. We had such a wonderful group, lots of fun, lots of laughs and even a few friend requests. Get outside really gives you so much more than hiking help.

I came away from the experience with a full energy tank and a smile on my face, lunch with Champagne was the perfect ending!

Finally managed to head out on a hike with Kane from Get Outside Melbourne through the Dandenong Ranges. Awesome guide and a great time was had. Such a civilised way to finish with lunch and bubbles
