Enjoy one of the natural wonders of Australia. Stroll among the towering eucalypts of the Blue Dandenongs and visit the William Ricketts santuary, a place of beauty and tranquillity. In this picturesque natural setting we wander among the mystical sculptures half hidden among ferns along the pathways. It is a place for quiet reflection a sculpture garden in the forest where the artist sculpted aborigines among the trees and plants. Visit one of the mountain villages with small speciality shops and a unique atmosphere and enjoy morning or afternoon tea listening to the birds of the forest.
