Olivine is located approximately 30 kilometres north of Melbourne's CBD in Donnybrook within the City of Whittlesea municipality. The masterplanned community spans 465 hectares and is expected to deliver circa 4,500 lots over approximately 20 years. Olivine is expected to become home to approximately 11,000 residents and will include a new local town centre, education facilities, health, sports and community infrastructure, whilst 30% of the site will be dedicated to open space and conservation. Hume Anglican Grammar Donnybrook is currently open with students across Prep to Grade 6 and will ultimately expand to a Prep - Year 12 school. The Olivine Community Hub, encompassing a social enterprise cafe, community space and sales office, opened in 2020, in parallel with Gumnut Adventure Park. The nine hectare active open space precinct is expected to be ready for use in late 2023. The Donnybrook Government Primary School opened in Term 1, 2023. This will complement the planned opening of Wallaby Early Learning and Childcare centre in late 2023 and the new 66 place kindergarten, which opened in Term 1, 2022.
