Olinda

Olinda - Yarra Valley Dandenongs - Victoria

Welcome to the centre and one of the highest townships in the Dandenong Ranges lies the idyllic village of Olinda. Cloaked in the visually spectacular backdrop of lush fern gullies, waterfalls and lofty Mountain Ash forest, Olinda's picturesque landscape, spectacular gardens and relaxing picnic locations gives visitors perfect postcard memories to take home with them. Hunt for treasures in local boutiques, scour one-of-a-kind handicrafts in galleries and savour the taste of scrumptious treats and the famous Devonshire tea of the Dandenong Ranges.

Marvel at the spectacular National Rhododendron Gardens flaunting thousands of rhododendrons, camellias, daffodils and azaleas with the Rhododendron and Daffodil festival held from August to November. Don't miss the mystical beauty of sculptures peaking through lush ferns at the William Ricketts Sanctuary. Immerse yourself into the tranquil setting nestled in a ferny glade in the Dandenongs, where environment and our Indigenous people were the inspiration for the works of the late William Ricketts.

Sample local produce at the Olinda Creek Hotel, Wild Oak Restaurant and Ranges at Olinda then hit the trail and discover the local wildlife, including the mysterious lyrebird, as you wander walking tracks like Thousands Steps Track and the walk to Sherbrook Falls in the Dandenong Ranges National Park.
