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. While many visitors take their time and enjoy all of the constantly changing vistas of the gardens, others prefer to take shorter walks into specific areas. Walking the entire garden is a round trip of approximately 5km, and includes some steeper grades. Magnificent views overlook Silvan Reservoir, the Yarra Valey, Warburton Ranges and Mt Baw Baw. The National Rhododendron Gardens are open 10.00am to 5.00pm daily (last entry 4.30pm) except Christmas Day. Entrance to the gardens is free. The park is located 500 metres from the Olinda township along the Olinda - Monbulk Road. Turn into The Georgian Road, the entrance is 50 metres on the right. During the busy spring period, parking on weekends is limited. There is additional parking available at both the Olinda Recreation Reserve on the corner of The Georgian Road and Olinda-Monbulk Road, and the former Olinda Golf Course site on the Olinda-Monbulk Road. Both these sites are within a two minute walk of the main entrance. less

The Gardens are renowned for their extensive water features including a quaint boathouse, the unusual Blackfish Pond and a picturesque lake which is fed by two striking waterfalls. The structure of the garden is emphasized by the many rock walls, waterfalls, upper pools and the magnificent lakes. The many linking paths through this garden take you beneath a canopy of awesome Mountain Ash Trees. Admire the natural beauty of the surroundings all year round. Walk through shady trees down to the picturesque lake, and picnic with the family by the boathouse. In spring, view the flowering azaleas, cherry trees and viburnum. Stroll through the magnificent gardens, take your dog for a walk or photograph the blooming flowers. The garden is located on Sherbrooke Road, Sherbrooke. The visitor car park is opposite the main entrance. less
