In 10 minutes you could be riding on the legendary 'Puffing Billy' steam train in Belgrave, walking the Kokoda Trail 1000 steps at the foot of the mountain or looking out from the Sky High Observatory at the top of Mt Dandenong over the greater Melbourne landscape. In under 20 minutes you could be picking berries and cherries in Silvan. In 40 minutes you can be visiting the world renowned Yarra Valley Wineries or the Yarra Ranges National Park. The choice of destinations is endless!
A message from your host
"Welcome to all our visitors. We trust you will enjoy and love our Clarendon property as much as we do.
The beauty of our secluded acreage with it's English country gardens is a world away from the pressures of modern day living and we invite you to share it for a relaxing weekend or maybe an extended stay. There is so much to experience in the magnificent Dandenong Ranges & Yarra Valley area so why not enjoy your time sightseeing and sampling the local fare and then at the end of the day return to your cosy, comfortable cottage, put your feet up in front of the fire with a glass of excellent Yarra Valley wine and watch as the mist comes down over the trees on a cold winters night. What more could you ask for! We look forward to making your stay a memorable one."
