Where you’ll be

Olinda, Victoria, Australia

Situated in the Heart of the Dandenong Ranges the cottage is ideally located walking distance between the beautiful villages of Olinda and Mt Dandenong so you are close to everything, but away from it all.

Just a few minutes walk up to Olinda village featuring fabulous artisan boutiques, cafes, restaurants, antiques, book shop, chocolatier, Dudleys restaraunt for great pizza & live music on weekends. Forest Lounge for something special. The National Rhododendron Gardens are just half a kilometre from your door and a must visit.

5 minutes walk down the road to Mt Dandenong village where you will find the famous Mt Dandenong Hotel great for an traditional Australian counter meal in front of the open fire and live music on weekends.

Kate Kellys Tavern for fabulous local beers on tap & our favourite local Providore’ The Deli Pantry for the best coffee, breakfast, lunch & all your grazing needs.

Pelligrinos fresh fruit & vegi market have fresh meat and beautiful local produce is open 6 days & deliver.

Just wander a little further down the road for great beers on tap at The Pig & Whistle Tavern and if you’re hungry a menu must have The Piggy Parma!

The cottage is just under 2 kilometres from Mt Dandenong Observatory ~ Sky High lookout and restaurant for fabulous views over Melbourne and our favourite must visits, The William Ricketts Sanctuary and Olinda Falls.

Or you can simply enjoy the natural surroundings of the state forest. Take walks; feed the Rosellas, King Parrots and cockatoos. There are several superb gardens and Forest walks that we can share with you. Or you can use the walking maps provided to explore on your own.

From your Forest Balcony You may be fortunate enough to see wallabies, deer and lyre birds, kookaburras & rosella’s.

Hello! I love a spontaneous conversation as much as I love to retreat and have quiet time in nature. I’ve been in business for many years so I know how essential it is to have time out. I believe it is important it is to be surrounded by beautiful things and keep this in mind whilst creating a space for relaxation, meditation or contemplation. I have a Scandinavian background and have travelled since I was very young, I am a free spirit yet I love having my feet on the ground and need nature around me. Hence the reason I live in The Dandenong Ranges surrounded by the forest and tree ferns where we have our beautiful cottage, it is just the perfect place to retreat, relax and recharge. Living in Australia is incredible as there is so much here to see and do, I love adventure and to experience new places, especially riding my motorcycle and get away as often as possible staying in places you wouldn’t usually find. I look forward to either hosting a stay for you at Wild Orchid Olinda or discovering your place soon.
