Only a short drive from Flowerdale Estate, the Kerrisdale Mountain Railway is a unique railway built to two-foot gauge on a zig-zag formation. To gain the maximum height within the shortest distance, steep grades and tight curves also abound, with panoramic views at the summit that will take your breath away.

Kinglake National Park is one of Australia’s many National Parks, but what makes this park unique is how close to metropolitan Melbourne it is located.

"It was a surprise to find such a well maintained property tucked away out of sight in hilly country. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive and the ambiance of the surroundings was extremely quiet and peaceful (after battling through Melbourne traffic!). A long way (270km) for afternoon tea, but worth it. The sandwiches, cakes etc. were fresh, tasty and apparently made on the premises. The décor and furniture of the refurbished buildings was in keeping with the estate's history - including the detailed ceiling cornices which are worth noting."
