Olinda Falls + Valley

Dandenong Ranges National Park

Can you live from a place of grounded peace? Join us, and find sanctuary in the wild...

One of the most magical forest walks in the Dandenong Ranges, our journey to the upper and lower Olinda Falls passes through Peppermint Gums, towering Mountain Ash and ancient fern gullies. In the company of lyrebirds, gang gang cockatoos, and perhaps even a wedge-tailed eagle, we will journey alongside trickling creeks, bathe in the sounds of forest-nestled cascades, and feast on stunning forest vistas. Together we will rediscover our inner quiet sanctuary, and emerge grounded and reconnected.

* Easy-Moderate hiking grade: General level walking on well-made trails. Some trails less maintained with some overgrowth. Uneven surfaces are present (rocks, tree roots, leaf litter etc). Some hills with decent incline. Slippery surfaces at times, particularly after rain. Some level of walking fitness and sturdy footing required.

Note: This is not a "walk in the park" :) As with all hikes in wilderness areas, the walking trails will of course be unpaved. As such, all hikes (including those categoried as 'easy') will have plentiful uneven ground, rough, slippery and undulating surfaces. This is the wild after all! If you have any concerns about the trail, or any injuries or illnesses which you'd like to discuss, please feel free to contact us (there is also a place to provide this info during online registration).

With wholehearted gratitude for country, spirit, and its people, throughout the lands on which we live, teach, and practice, we respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners, their cultures, knowledge, and their continuing care for their country. We pay respect to their Elders past, present, and future. Sovereignty was never ceded.
