This is a definite must-see if you are visiting Melbourne. As a resident, I tend to visit here a couple of times a year. There is a cafe with outdoor tables, a restaurant (which I always book), beautiful gardens and a hedge maze. You can...More

At an elevation of 630 metres, it provides a good view of the surrounding area, including the skyline of Melbourne in the distance. An A$7 entry fee per car and ample parking in the half a dozen parking areas, but disabled access easiest from carparks...More

We waited for a few minutes while the waiter fiddled with the music. Not a great start to be ignored. At the entrance/bar there were 3 people having what looked like a staff meeting! Very unprofessional. The booking had been made for 6 people and...More
