Did you know The Porch is located within 500m of many of the Dandenongs best tourist attractions? Many of our visitors make a day of their trip by combining a visit to see our furniture with tea and scones, a walk or feeding the local wildlife.
Here are just some of the things you can see and do, which are just a stroll from us.
Grant’s Picnic Ground: If you want to get away from suburbia and enjoy our lovely countryside, you could visit Grant’s Picnic Ground, where you can hand-feed sulphur-crested cockatoos and rosellas. There is a cafe, walking tracks and lots of photo opportunities. Distance from The Porch: 500 metres.
Kallista Village Market: On the first Saturday of each month, Kallista holds a village market focusing on organic, hand-made art and craft.
Distance from The Porch: out the back gate and across the main road.
Kallista Tea Rooms: The Kallista Tea Rooms are located in a gorgeous 1930s art-deco building. You can sit inside the circular tearooms and have beautiful Devonshire tea while watching the birds that visit from feeders located just outside the windows. Distance from the Porch: 500m
George Tindale Gardens: This public garden houses a unique collection of exotic plants set beneath a canopy of large mountain ash. It is a great place to have a picnic on the lawn, or just to wander through the meandering paths. Distance from The Porch: 300m (but you’ll need to drive as it is a very steep hill to get there!)
