  • Sky High is set amongst the stunning forest of Mt Dandenong, with forest walks available, a gorgeous restaurant, high tea, and a neat little cafe. I feel like a little more attention could be given to the cafe/bar- with a little refurbishment it could look spectacular. It was a touch dated. Perhaps to encourage people to eat at the more expensive restaurant? The view when we went was a little poor, with visibility being extremely low. I've been before at night and....wow. To -all- travellers, go when you can see the night lights of Melbourne. That view is breathtaking. As you can see from the photo- going during a warm day produces a nice "Smog" view of our growing city. The seven dollar entry charge is a little ridiculous. I think with the amount of cars that come through you could easily hit a three dollar/five dollar entry fee. Especially since the maze is also charged to visit. Make sure you read the story of the Wishing Tree and make a wish in the Wishing Well! It's worth the drive- just do go at night, bring some change, and get ready to walk.
  • We live on the hill and love to take friends and family to SkyHigh, or just go ourselves. Sometimes it's just for coffee and cake, or for a casual meal in the cafe, but we've also dined upstairs. This time we had a very enjoyable breakfast taking in the views from a window seat. Booking, reminders, and service on the day were all great. The gardens and setting is amazing. Thanks.
