Dandenong Ranges

Discover the Hills > Private day trip tour from Melbourne to the Dandenong Ranges – for up to four passengers.

Come for the perfect ‘step-back-in-time’ classic car tour in a mid-50s Chevrolet coupe to experience: winding mountain roads; luscious rainforest; café stop hosted by Shannon Bennett at Burnham Beeches; freeway cruising; roadside artworks; jazz jazz (cool) jazz, glimpses of an abandoned Art Deco mansion; stroll to a hidden garden lake house; and a scenic lookout rest stop and photo opportunity … available for bookings seven days a week. 

The Dandenong Ranges (Dandenongs) are perhaps Melbourne’s most essential near-to-city tourist experience – and we say the best way to enjoy them, from one end to another, is from the seat in one of our old-school cars … America’s all-time favourite automobile! 

Your party of four can be collected from city hotels or a Carlton café for a private tour driven by d’Luxe host, John Frostell – local Chevrolet enthusiast and drive-to location expert. 

A typical ‘Dandenong Ranges’ tour heads:
> CBD/Carlton
> East Link
> Ferntree Gully
> Sherbrooke
> Kalorama

The itinerary takes 3 hours (half day) or can be expanded to make a 6 hours (full day) tour. Stops can be added and changed to suit passenger interests and available time.

Note: The Piggery Café at Burnham Beeches is closed until further notice.

These tours are the perfect choice for international and interstate visitors wanting a unique look at Melbourne and surrounds, otherwise for locals looking at special gift ideas or simply just a bit of fun! Also makes for a perfect shore excursion with cruise ship travellers.
