The first of it’s kind in Victoria’s Dandenong Ranges, Olinda Woods Wellness Retreat is a breath of fresh air. Created by health professionals, this self-contained accommodation is founded on the philosophy of wellness and sustainability. Nestled atop a 3-acre forest garden, the open plan design highlights expansive forest views to promote relaxation and rest. 

Accessed by a private carpark and entrance, guests are welcomed with an organic breakfast, biodynamic wine, Hunted & Gathered chocolates, organic towels, linens & robes, and Sanctum organic soaps. OWWR also features UV filtered water, non-toxic cleaning, large double spa, king size bed, Mukti yoga mats, and a wood-fire stove. 

The OWWR gardens are a thriving ecosystem to explore, with a mixture of rare and exotic plants and trees amongst native and indigenous flora. Shared with vibrant birdlife, fauna, and the resident wombat, the forest can be enjoyed and accessed by established and hidden pathways that wind amongst the majestic Mountain Ash gums.

Only 3 minutes drive from Olinda town centre and 1hr from Melbourne CBD, Olinda Woods provides the perfect base for exploring the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley
