66 McCrae Street, Dandenong
Amidst the fast paced, and sometimes chaotic city sits the serene oasis that is the Heritage Hill Museum & Gardens.
The compound is actually made up of three preserved buildings; Laurel Lodge (1869), Benga (1936), and St. James Anglican Church (1864).
Heritage Hill transports visitors into the journey that turned the area from a rural market town to the multicultural metropolis that it is today.
