The Olinda section of Dandenong Ranges National Park, covering 790
hectares between Olinda, Kalorama and the catchment of Silvan Reservoir,
once formed part of the Dandenong State Forest Reserve. One of the
newer sectiones of the National Park, Olinda boasts relatively
undisturbed native habitat.
Three picnic areas are located in the forest. Valley Picnic Ground to
the south, Eagle Nest Picnic Ground to the east, and Olinda Falls Picnic
Ground to the west.
