Wandin East is located within the Shire of Yarra Ranges and is close to suburbs including Wandin North, Seville and Silvan.

The name Wandin is a contraction of Wandin Yallock, meaning swift-running stream. This was fruit-growing country from a very early date and land sold quickly from the mid-1860s.

This area is set on fertile red soil and there are many fruit orchards in the town. Major crops include cherries, strawberries, raspberries, apples and more recently wine grapes. You'll find a bit of roadside produce as people sell their surplus as well as fully functioning Farmgate experiences.

During spring, the cherry blossoms come alive at CherryHill Orchards and tourists and locals flock to see the stunning display of flowers.
