A beautiful weekday and what a luxury to head out of town to explore the local countryside. I'd heard of the William Ricketts Sanctuary on Mount Dandenong but had no idea what to expect. It's a very special place, unique and magical. Sculptures covered in moss seem to organically emerge from the surrounding ferns and the spectacular mountain ash trees tower above. It's certainly a must see for locals and tourists alike. Be sure to make a donation as entry is free.
