Kallista is a small, charming village located in the mountain forests of the Dandenong Ranges between Belgrave and Olinda.
The heart of Kallista meets at the junction of Monbulk and Emerald and is a combination of speciality shops and cafes. Visiting on the weekend? The community house on Church Street hosts the monthly Kallista Community Arts and Crafts Market with a variety of food, plants, handmade craft stalls and artworks as well as entertainment.
Spend a day among the trees in the Dandenong Ranges National Park which offers visitors walking tracks through bird-filled native Australian bushland, offering a great day out wandering through the scenic and mountainous environments.
Plan a picnic on Perrins Creek Road at the footbridge crossing Sassafras Creek within the Sherbrooke Forest. It’s scenic, serene and you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away.
A variety of boutique accommodation is available for couples, families and small groups alike.
Visit the lookout at Johns Hill Reserve, off Ridge Road, for views past Monbulk and across Johns Hill reservoir towards Menzies Creek and Emerald.
