Olinda Precinct Project
The former Olinda Golf Course is located 50 kilometres east of Melbourne in the Dandenong Ranges, between the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden and R. J. Hamer Arboretum.
Originally constructed in the 1950s, the site stopped operating as a golf course in 2012 and was subsequently opened to the public as an informal parkland.
The Olinda Precinct Plan was developed in consultation with the community in 2016, with the final plan released in 2017. The precinct plan aims to deliver refurbishment works to transform the site into a 34-hectare open-space site for recreation.
We’re now delivering on the Olinda Precinct Plan to provide more opportunities for the community to get active in nature and make the most of this fantastic location.
The plan is being delivered in stages via various projects, as outlined below.
