Belgrave

  • by

A residential suburb and township of some 4,000 people located in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, Belgrave  is only 36 kms away from Melbourne.  One of the main attractions of the township is the Puffing Billy tourist railway.

Originally an area of small farm holdings which were hewn out of the well timbered slopes of the Dandenong Ranges, a township began to form mostly from the beginning of the 20th century.
