Situated between Olinda and Monbulk you have access to the restaurants and bars of Olinda village and the staples provided by Monbulk township. Within a short 10 min drive the township of Kallista also supports a number of casual dining opportunities. For off the beaten track dining the area is scattered with small restaurants and bars eager to please and with excellent food and aromatic coffee.
Slightly further afield is Sassafras which is a major tourist centre hosting a depth of activities and dining with dining from pancakes and scones to gourmet food though please check the times of opening as most of Sassafras closes early in the afternoon.
For longer stays the more mundane shopping is available in Monbulk with a full service supermarket so you will never be short of the necessities.
Parks and Gardens
With a short drive you you can feed the birds at Grants picnic ground in Kallista, this is a massively popular treat for foreign tourists and a must see for anyone travelling into the hills. The national park adjacent to Grants is a temperate rainforest with an amazing diversity of wildlife and birds from wallabies to lyre birds, a quiet walk down the paths surrounded by towering gums will always surprise.
Situated in Olinda the "National Rhododendron Gardens" are host to brilliantly coloured blooms of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, cherries and daffodils. Seasonal changes ensure the gardens are a delight all year around. When not in bloom, you can still soak in the beauty of rich bark textures, seed capsules, foliage shapes and beautiful fragrance as you stroll through the grounds.
Just past Olinda you will find William Ricketts Sanctuary the perfect setting for the blending of the natural and spiritual realms. It is a place of beauty and tranquillity displaying sculptures of Aboriginal figures set in the natural environment of the Dandenong ranges.

Charming, peaceful home away from home
We had such a lovely time relaxing at Pinehill. It’s in a beautiful setting and we arrived to a toasty warm home with plenty of cosy places to relax with a book, movie or just enjoying the view. We found this a great value home for our girls weekend and we will be back.
Amazing stay for those who need a place to calm and quiet and looking to switch off
Great attention to detail. Pictures simply don't do justice as the attention to detail for all the requirements are just flawless. If you have pets there's a massive garden for them to wander around. We loved the two days stay over Easter weekend and will not hesitate to come back.
We really loved the house and its amenities. Jo is a wonderful host, we really appreciate her kind gestures. Our dog loved the treats too. We highly recommend Jo as a host and her property. We will defintely come back and stay at her house again next time.
GREAT HOUSE IN PEACEFUL NATURAL SETTING
This is a quiet and peaceful property set in a huge natural garden area.
The house itself is spacious,neat and contains all the creature comforts.
Jo the owner is very helpful and professional in managing the place.
The location is in a picturesque and striking alpine/"tree change"part of the Dandenongs- reason alone for a visit.
Set a long way back from the main rd and very close to the Monbulk shops.
Definitely a worthwhile destination.
Home away from Home
We chose Pinehill as it was close to a wedding reception we were attending. What a wonderful find! The house was a very warm welcome from a somewhat wintery wet weekend. The photos don't do it justice. Jo keeps such a lovely, clean and cosy house. The house is well provisioned for a weekend or a week long stay. She has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable including such treats as wine and chocs. Thanks Jo.
Breathtaking and inviting!
Our family absolutely loved their stay at pine hill! The owner Jo is exceptional, caring and hospitable! The gardens were fabulous all we needed was right there! Jo left little welcome gifts for us to share as we celebrated the wedding of our youngest. She went way past what we expected and hope to get back to Australia to stay again!! We love this place it is like a dream to stay here!!
