Explore Warburton's Sequoia Forest

Rate this Adventure Australia Warburton's Sequoia Forest

Added by Adam Dyson

Walk through over 1400 Californian Redwoods less than 90 minutes from Melbourne's CBD.

These particular Californian Redwoods were planted in 1930 after the clearing of a eucalypt forest. The redwoods range from 20 to 55 meters high and is a popular location for photographers due to the leading lines the massive tree provide. Use a tripod and a wide angle lens to show the size of these trees. The symmetry make for some awesome photos.

If you are lucky you might see sculptures woven from fallen branches constructed by David Digapony, a local artist/sculptor. Often getting to the forest before sunrise, Dave takes 6-8 hours to construct large circular sculptures. Unfortunately, due to the risk of the sculptures falling over. They only last a few days before they are pushed over by rangers.

You can get to the Redwood via Cement Creek rd, there is a small car park with good access through a small gate to the north of the car park.

Hi, I'm a Melbourne, Australia based photographer. I have a passion for landscape and long exposure photography. I love nothing more than escaping the major cities and finding beautiful images.

Australia / Harrop Track Carpark

In the summer, this hike can be extremely dry, so make sure to bring lots of water. There are some creeks that offer water, but they can be mere trickles at certain times of year (as we found out!).
