Exploring Mount Dandenong



Burke's Lookout is high up on the western flank of the Dandenong Ranges National Park, about 35 km east of Melbourne.

It offers superb views across Melbourne's eastern and northern suburbs, with the city towers and Port Phillip Bay visible on the horizon.

Access to the Lookout is via the rocky Kyeema walking track, near the summit of Mt Dandenong. This gated track is reached from a small car park off Ridge Rd, adjacent to the TV transmission towers.

A side track leads to the memorial cairn, at the spot where the Kyeema DC2 aircraft crashed in 1938, with the loss of all 18 passengers and crew.

I visited the Lookout on Thursday afternoon July 16, 2009, as part of a 4 km exploration which took me along the northern section of the Kyeema Track, along Trig Track, and then into the beautiful gardens of the Mt. Dandenong Arboretum.
