Woolrich Lookout

Woolrich Lookout is one of the most fascinating viewing spots located in the Dandenong Ranges. This lookout is tucked away in the RJ Hamer Arboretum, and offers incredible views of the Dandenong Ranges National Park in the distance.

Perhaps the best thing about it is that it is located just an hour’s drive from Melbourne, making it easily accessible for a day trip.

This lookout point is a hidden gem, and obviously one of the region’s best kept secrets. From here, you can enjoy panoramic views that cover the expanse of the Dandenong Ranges right through to the imposing Yarra Valley and the iconic Great Dividing Range.

This is the perfect place to combine a love for the outdoors with the area’s natural beauty. Whether you would like to enjoy a quiet stroll in the early morning, or prefer to soak in the area’s beauty with a book in hand, the choice is yours to make. The tranquillity and scenery is a rewarding experience it itself.

Art lovers will appreciate that at Woolrich Lookout, there are two paintings that dot the artists trail. Both paintings are the works of renowned artist, Arthur Streeton. The two are ‘View from Farmer’s, Olinda’ and ‘Golden afternoon in Olinda’, both of which capture the natural beauty of Olinda.

There are a number of trails that lead up to the lookout point, making this a favourite section for bush walkers and those who love jogging. The outdoors is perfect for a family picnic, so be sure to carry your blankets too for a memorable experience with friends and family. The best part about this lookout, is that dogs are welcome in the RJ Hamer Aboretum, as long as they remain on a leash.

Woolrich Lookout is easily accessible by car, and is a few minutes’ drive from Olinda-Monbulk Road.
