Since moving to the Yarra Valley 9 years ago, I have wanted to visit the Ada Tree. The access from Yarra Junction-Noojee Road was 24km of slightly windy, dirt road! For a Saturday in Spring there weren’t many people around, so the drive was enjoyable....More

It's a 24 km journey off the main road along a well maintained gravel road. Take it slow as road narrow and winding and log trucks use some of the route. Beautiful majestic Mountain Ash tree's and many tree ferns. Large car park and picnic...More

Lovely walk in through the bush though its a fair way in from the turn off. Easy car parking. The board walk could be accessed via the services track if wheelchair access needed but you'd need to contact the Parks people to unlock the gate.
