Olinda

Perch high above Melbourne and observe the striking seasons in the beautiful gardens of Olinda, one of the highest villages in the Dandenong Ranges.

Olinda's gardens in bloom
Soak up postcard-perfect scenery in Olinda's public and private gardens, like spring blooms, autumnal colours, crisp summer days and occasional light snowfalls.

A particular prize is the National Rhododendron Gardens, which contain thousands of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and daffodils. There are also the quirky sculptures hiding in the William Ricketts Sanctuary, rare and historic plants at Cloudehill, and botanically important trees at Pirianda.

Browsing boutiques and replenishing refreshments
Search for boutique treasures and browse through Olinda's art and handicraft galleries like Touchstone Craft Gallery, which sells the works of over 250 Australian master craftspeople.

Sample a famous Dandenong Ranges Devonshire tea, and save room for the showcasing of local produce at Ranges at Olinda, Mount Dandenong Hotel, Wild Oak Café and Credo Restaurant.
