The troubles of the world slip away as visitors ascend through mountain forests to Olinda. Bark hanging over the road outside William Ricketts Sanctuary lends a primordial feel to the drive. Further on, craft shops, tearooms, and restaurants with quaint names like "The Pig and Whistle" and "Fox and Hounds" line the village of Olinda. Once on top of the ridgeline it is an easy run to Sassafras with its tea shop, tearooms and Doll House Lane. Coming down the mountain, the villages of Ferny Creek and Tremont reveal more hidden delights en route to Ferntree Gully.
It was a tipical cold melbourne day as we headed to the Dandenong Ranges. We found some clean neat picnic areas. The view from the top was breath taking.
