The heart of Kallista meets at the junction of Monbulk and Emerald and is a combination of speciality shops and cafes. What can you do in the area?
Spend a day among the trees in the Dandenong Ranges National Park, which offers visitors walking tracks through bird-filled native Australian bushland. It is a great day out wandering through the scenic and mountainous environments.
Plan a picnic on Perrins Creek Road at the footbridge crossing Sassafras Creek within the Sherbrooke Forest. It’s scenic and serene, and you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away.
Visit the lookout at Johns Hill Reserve, off Ridge Road, for views past Monbulk and across Johns Hill reservoir towards Menzies Creek and Emerald.
