William Ricketts Sanctuary

Just an hour from Melbourne, one finds a landscape of huge pine trees and beautiful fern gullies in the Dandenong Ranges. This beautiful place was built by William Ricketts.


William Ricketts, spent a lot of time living with indigenous communities in central Australia, created this sanctuary as a place for quiet reflection and spirit replenishment. He believed that all Australians should embrace Aboriginal philosophies, respecting Mother Earth's spirituality and all natural world things. 

The sanctuary of William Ricketts is about 40 kilometers east of Melbourne. Take Canterbury Road to Montrose, follow Mt. Dandenong Touist Road for 4 km, or take Burwood Highway to Fertree Gully, follow Mount Dandenong Tourist Road for approximately 12 km.
