Ride the Olinda Trail

The Olinda Creek Trail Committee invites all bike riders to join them on Tuesday 26 March at 9.45am from Mount Evelyn to Olinda.

Hoping to show Yarra Ranges councillors that this extended trail has the community’s backing, the ride will take the proposed path.

Beginning at York and Tramway Road car park in Mount Evelyn, it will finish at the Olinda shopping strip, taking approximately an hour and 45 minutes.

The committee suggests it would be quite easy for eBike riders and fine for strong riders on hybrid bikes. It is mostly off road (including some quiet roads) and existing trails, most in good condition.

Easter fun at The Parents Hub

Join The Parents Hub for its annual Easter event on Sunday 24 March from 9.30am to 11am.

Play on the playground, hunt for easter eggs and say hello to the Easter Bunny with a special visit from the bouncing bundle of joy.

The event is a fundraiser for the Hub and its services, with a cost of $15 per family and $5 for each additional child.
