Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Mountain Ash

The National Rhododendron Gardens are situated in the lovely township of Olinda which nestles in the centre of the Dandenong Ranges. Managed by Parks Victoria, these 104 acres of gardens are a magnificent colour palette of rhododendrons, azaleas, camillias and  many other floral wonders set amongst stands of mighty Mountain Ash.
Approximately a 3 kilometer walk around the main pathway with a picnic lunch by the lake is a delightful and peaceful way to spend three hours or so.
