Visitors who fancy a picnic will be excited to learn that the picnic site at Kalorama Park has two barbecues which operate using gas. This picnic area is popular with families and travellers who are touring the Dandenong Ranges in large groups, as there is plenty of space and accessible amenities.
From the upper section of the park, visitors can get spectacular views of the Dandenong Ranges. In the heat of summer, the tall eucalyptus trees offer much-needed shade over the picnic areas. In addition to picnicking, visitors can also take short nature walks within the park.
Kalorama Park has numerous walking trails leading up from the three parking areas. Visitors will get to walk through the dense forests, see beautiful native plants and pass ancient fruit orchards that have been in the area for many years.
