Kalorama, a residential area in the Dandenong Ranges, is 36 km east of Melbourne. Situated on the Mount Dandenong Tourist Road, it is immediately north of the Olinda State Forest.

The name, given in about 1932, is derived from the Greek word kalos, denoting beautiful panoramic views. There is a viewing position on the Tourist Road at the Five Ways Corner formerly a popular tea room and now a picnic area with a gallery and cafe.
