Gembrook is tucked in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, just one hour's drive from Melbourne. It is part of the Shire of Cardinia and is close to suburbs such as Cockatoo, Narre Warren and Emerald.

Gembrook was first settled by Europeans in 1873. It boasts a strong farming background and timber felling was carried out to prepare land for farming. Sawmilling became the main industry when Puffing Billy Railway came to Gembrook in 1900.

Known for being the final destination for the iconic Puffing Billy train, a delight for young and old. This small town is located on the fringe of the Bunyip State Forest, making it the perfect place to stop and explore if you’re feeling outdoorsy. Kurth Kiln Regional Park is a must-do in Gembrook with wonderful walks, stunning views and Shiprock Falls.

Spending a day in Gembrook is a relaxed experience with plenty of places to dine and shop or spread out a blanket for a picnic in the park.
