The balmy days of autumn are the perfect time to visit the Dandenong Ranges when the mountains are cloaked in red and gold leaves. It is also chestnut season and what better time to visit our orchard in beautiful Olinda, just under an hour’s drive east of Melbourne. Chestnuts in this region are harvested in April and May. The best chestnuts are sold directly from the orchard.
