Relax, unwind and leave the city stress behind with a weekend in Sassafras. Discover the village's nineteenth century charm, along with our gorgeous store in the heart of Sassafras on Mount Dandenong Tourist Road, before strolling through lush English gardens, and savouring an afternoon Devonshire tea.
Hop from brunch to a late lunch to dinner in Sassafras's renowned cafes and restaurants, and come back for seconds in the quaint tearooms. Take Devonshire tea at Miss Marples Tearoom, an authentic English cottage inspired by Agatha Christie.
Between meals browse in the antique stores and the local specialist shops. Pick up local wine and produce at Ripe or General Food Store. Find wooden toys and handmade puppets at Geppetto's Workshop, and grab a teapot as a souvenir at Tea Leaves along with black, green and herbal teas from across the globe.
Take a wander through the magical Alfred Nicholas Gardens or the nearby George Tindale Memorial Gardens and feel as though you're in another world.
Linger in nearby Sherbrooke Forest as you stroll past waterfalls and picnic grounds on the nature walk trails. Stretch the legs on a hike along the 13-kilometre Sassafras Creek Forest Trail to Emerald, taking in lush fern gullies, mosses and towering Mountain Ash.
