Our Location in the Dandenong Ranges
The Dandenongs, 50 Minutes From Melbourne
High in the Dandenong Ranges, situated at Kalorama in the Olinda State Forest, overlooking Silvan Dam and right down the Yarra Valley. CountryPlace seems like a world away. Yet the venue is only 50 minutes from the CBD.
Surrounded by towering Mountain Ash trees and green, ferny gullies the bird and animal wildlife is something to behold. Wake to the sounds of warbling magpies and laughing Kookaburras. Take an early morning walk along bush tracks and don’t be surprised to come across a wallaby, wombat or even an elusive lyrebird.
Stunning Gardens & Cute Wildlife
Sixty year old gardens that comprise camellias, rhododendrons, maples, chestnut trees and a large variety of flowering native plantings. This is a wonderful setting for a conference where guests are encouraged to meet in the outdoors, weather permitting.
The gardens provide sanctuary for an abundance of wildlife including these gorgeous ducks, native birds, wombats, koalas and much more.
