Hiding Place In The Hills
The Aboriginal name, "Monbolloc" translates as 'hiding place in the hills'. In 1893 a village settlement, Dandenong Forest Village Settlement, of 76 farms of 10-acre (40,000 m2) was created.
Today Monbulk is a township with farms growing fruit, nursery plants and a substantial bulb and cut-flower industry for national and international markets. Monbulk has remained a popular place for visitors travelling through the Growers and Farmgates sub region of the Dandenong Ranges. It is a great spot for lunch or a snack if walking through the Dandenong Ranges National Park or cycling through the hills.
A great mix of properties there is something for everyone in Monbulk.
