Montaine’s residents are gifted a location with innumerable offerings within their grasp. Every single day presents a new opportunity to revel in natural beauty - within Croydon or the nearby Dandenong Ranges - or to bask in the warm ambience of the local village.

The Dandenong Ranges

Low and behold the Dandenong Ranges – one of Victoria’s most enchanting destinations and the inspiration behind the name ‘Montaine’. Amid the fresh mountain air, verdant forests and rocky hills form a rural landscape that is inconceivably, less than an hour from the city. Within this lush haven are a myriad of attractions, and plenty of opportunities to reconnect with nature. For many, visiting the ranges makes for a lengthy day trip, though for Croydon’s residents, this consists of a drive less than 20 minutes.
