If you are travelling from Melbourne city, choose either the Monash Freeway or Eastlink.

Monash Freeway, turn off at Ferntree Gully Road (9), and come up to the Burwood Highway (22), head towards the hill, go under the railway bridge and take the left branch up the Mt Dandenong Tourist Road (C415) for 12 kms to Olinda Village.

When you come through Sassafras, 3kms further to Olinda, you will vere left as you come to the shops, then turn immediately right down Monash Avenue, past the Olinda Pharmacy. Candlelight Cottages are 500 meters (3 speed humps) down Monash Avenue on your right. Park in the first car park at 9 Monash Avenue.

If coming via Eastlink, please follow Eastlink to Burwood Highway (22), then follow the directions above.

BEWARE of GPS directions they may well take you the shortest route, which could bring you up the steep wobbly Basin Olinda Road which is an unmade road. Everyone who does this looks traumatised. We want you to be certain and relaxed!
