The estate which is situated on the traditional Wurundjeri land, now spans eight hectares of mostly forest alongside the Puffing Billy station in Belgrave. It features rare trees, including a magnificent 150-year-old Algerian Oak, used as the ‘Home Tree’ for the tree top adventure courses, the gigantic Sequoia that rises sixty metres above the earth and two Chinquapin – the only known Japanese oaks in Victoria.

Picnic sites

National Rhododendron GardensThese extensive gardens in Olinda have 40 hectares of brilliantly coloured blooms – rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, cherries and daffodils, with colour at all times of year. There are large areas of green lawn with amazing views over the Yarra Valley, perfect for setting up a picnic. There are no barbecues (the nearest are at the Hamer Arboretum), but there’s a cafe for the picnic-ly challenged. For more details, including how to get there, click here.
Hamer ArboretumThis spot on Woolrich Road, Olinda, named after a Victorian premier, Rupert Hamer, has gobsmacking views across the Yarra Valley. There’s a picnic shelter, free electric barbecues, miles of lawn with incredible views (did I mention the views?) as well as extensive walking trails through the forest of exotic, deciduous trees. Click here for more details including how to get there.
Grants Picnic GroundNestled in Sherbrooke Forest, Kallista, 40 kilometres east of Melbourne, this is a top spot to take visitors, especially when kids are involved, where friendly parrots and rosellas eat from your hand.

F.A.Q on Glen Harrow Park

Click here for General F.A.Q

Are you easy to find?

No, we are a very tricky place to find! We’re tucked away in a residential area. Google Maps is the best way to locate us. Follow the signs to Puffing Billy and Glen Harrow Gardens (brown signs). Old Monbulk Rd turns into a steep residential dirt road after the train tracks of Puffing Billy, and our car park is at the top of the dirt road. Only toilets are in the car park.

Is it free to watch?

Yes all spectators are welcome to watch free of charge. You will be able to watch participants from the ground walking on the path below. Please be weary that some of the paths are steep.

Is there a Cafe? YES!

The Botanist Cafe is currently closed for the next 6 – 8 weeks.

Can I use my own helmet?

Unfortunately personal helmets cannot be worn with us. Only helmets supplied by Trees Adventure can be worn on the course. For adventure video cameras, please see our FAQ’s.

Do you have BBQ facilities?

Due to the risk of fire, we do not permit any BBQ to be used on site. Check out our ‘What to do around’ tab for some good places to have a BBQ.
