So, are these reachable in a day trip from Melbourne? Would you stay there overnight? I'm wondering if we need a full article for this, or if it should go under the Melbourne one. --Evan 14:00, 15 Dec 2003 (PST)

Good questions. Easily reachable in a day trip. Could sleep there though - there are numerous places to sleep. The answer may be determined by asking what the optimum size of an article should be. Melbourne is now 32k (as I write, the 3rd biggest article in Wikitravel) and I guess it will expand with more detail over time. Nurg 01:03, 19 Jan 2004 (EST)
I guess the big thing is differentiating between a destination and an attraction. The would-you-sleep-there metric is one rule of thumb we've been using, but it's obviously imperfect (we don't have articles for individual hotels or individual beds, even though you may sleep there). --Evan 11:38, 19 Jan 2004 (EST)

Mount Dandenong is positively littered with guesthouses and bed-and-breakfast places. Lots of people stay there... It's a very popular place for weekend getaways, and also for daytrips from the city. I was just looking at the Melbourne article and I'd reiterate my former argument - it's getting too freaking long for its own good and it NEEDS to be broken up into subpages, not lengthened more.

not open for editing?[edit]

Why is the Dandenong Ranges page closed for editing? It needs an update! For example, under the "Eat" section it states that there's nothing available so to bring your own food. There are heaps of cafes and restaurants! —The preceding comment was added by (talkcontribs)

Hi, thanks for your comment. Looking at the page I think it was a mistake, instead of protecting the banner maybe the page was protected. I have adjusted it now so you can add your changes. Looking forward to your updates. Thanks! Adzas (talk) 04:49, 7 July 2015 (EDT)
