The Dandenong Ranges are a group of hills in Melbourne's east which delimit the boundaries of the city of Melbourne.
They can be seen from most parts of Melbourne, and are easily identifiable as a group of three hills with large television towers.
By far the greatest attraction of the Dandenong Ranges is the Puffing Billy railway, a tourist railway using steam locomotives that chugs through the beautiful lush bush of the ranges.
Another well visited attraction is the William Ricketts sanctuary. William Ricketts is a well known Australian artist, and this, his previously private retreat is dotted with amazing sculpture blended into the natural environs.
