Cockatoo is a bustling scenic town in the Dandenong Ranges, neighbouring Emerald, Avonsleigh, and Gembrook.

It has a small commercial centre that has been built along a steep section of McBride Street, featuring many cafes, restaurants and a small supermarket.

Like some of it’s neighbouring suburbs, Cockatoo has the pleasure of the Puffing Billy track passing through right near the town centre at the base of the hill.
