Boasting glorious scenery and native gardens, the National Rhododendron Garden in the Dandenong Mountains is popular among couples dreaming of an outdoor wedding ceremony in the mountains. The township of Olinda rests just a 20 minute drive away, where you’ll find coffee shops and gift shops.
Cafe Vireya is open for business during Spring — September to November — and acts as a reception venue in close proximity to the mountains.
Serenity Point is the most popular location for wedding ceremonies, with its stunning views and intimate gazebo. Other areas worth considering include The Camellia Garden, The Oak Tree Lawn, The Cherry Tree, The Terrace, The Magnolia Lawn, and Blossom Tree Grove. The Lake and The Pond are available during the Spring season only.
Staff are on hand to ensure couples take full advantage of their time in the gardens. Further details including pricing and contract conditions can be found on the Parks and Gardens website.
