Begin your adventure at the Silvan Reservoir Park; located just at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges. The park is the ideal location for a day trip out in the sun. Go on a trek at the Stonyford Creek Nature Walk, just a kilometre long. It will take you to native bushlands filled with photogenic lush greens. If you’re looking for a more challenging walk, take the Messmate Walking Trail.

The Olinda Creek Walking Track is another popular outdoor destination in Silvan. The track is a traverse from the Silvan Reservoir Park to the Mount Evelyn Recreation Reserve and can be started from either place. It takes around 2 hours to finish one way of the trail and is considered easy though there is a moderate hilly climb.

For those seeking more easy walks, check out the Grey Gum Track Walk. This trail is recommended for individuals who are just starting to hike or visitors that prefer a leisurely stroll. The Grey Gum Track Walk is close to the Silvan Reservoir, making it possible to visit several sights within a day or weekend.

The Tesselaar Nursery shouldn’t be missed for its majestic display of colourful garden plants. If you’re keen to take some plants home, you’ll be glad to know that several varieties are up for sale. The nursery is owned and managed by the Tesselaar family, as it has been for over 70 years. It also happens to be the site of the famous spring event, the Tesselaar Tulip Festival.

It’s no wonder Sivan attractions are so well-loved by outdoor enthusiasts. With many options to choose from, you’ll want to spend all your time in the outdoors.
