Lush Forest that echoes days gone.

About this Event

Our walk will follow historic tramways through spectacular and diverse forest scenery. From Mountain Ash, the worlds tallest hardwood, to cool temperate rainforest, in stunning sheltered gullies.

We will visit historic saw mill sites deep in the forest along the way, with many remnants of equipment from days gone by, leaving us filled with awe and wonder at what once was.

The walk will conclude with a visit to the Ada Tree. This 300 year old tree towers as one of Victoria’s largest and is certainly a highlight.
