Tremont is an outer suburb of Melbourne, Australia, 31 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its Local Government Area is the Shire of Yarra Ranges. At the 2006 Census, Tremont had a population of 4094. Almost the entire suburban area is within the lush Dandenong Ranges National Park. The Post Office opened on 16 July 1913, known as Dunstan's until 1919, and closed in 1977. Tremont was affected by the Dandenong Ranges fire of January 22, 1997. However, since then the forest has regenerated.
We have friends living there and these photos were taken on their property, which is nestled in the forest. It is glorious living in such a beautiful natural setting, but the fear of bushfire is a constant worry.
