depends how game you are riding princess hwy (guess depends what day and time you'll be riding there)
I've seen cyclists ride Dandenong rd. I've never used dandenong but done Nepean plenty of times with no troubles.
Dandenong rd isn't so bad, noisy but generally reasonable to ride. I've got mixed feelings about using the service lanes, sometimes there's less traffic than being on the main road, but on the downside you can meet motorists who decide to drive half a block "against the traffic" to the nearest break in the traffic island, and plenty of drivers coming out from the side streets have a habit of driving straight through the giveway or stop signs and the service lane, focussing solely on traffic on the main road.
