If you're coming up the mountain from Upper Ferntree Gully you'll head through Tremont where there is a petrol station. If you're running low, we advise filling up here as there is no petrol station on the mountain.
On from Tremont is Ferny Creek, home to our favourite pastry shop and baker at Proserpina. Across the road you can head down to the gorgeous and romantic cottages at Clarendon Cottages.
A little further up to the road you can turn right at Sherbrooke Rd and head past the historic Burnham Beeches to Alfred Nicholas Gardens. It is in these gardens that you'll find the famous boat house that is photographed often.
At the end of Sherbrooke Rd is the gorgeous village of Kallista which is worth a visit for it's wonderful general store full of local produce and wines. There are also other shops to browse. If you continue on the Monbulk Rd and turn right after the Kallista Tea Rooms, you'll head to the Chestnut Lodge Conference Centre.
