Redwood Forest, East Warburton
A friend posted some pics on FB, showing an outing to a beautiful Redwood Forest. I was very surprised at the location - East Warburton.
I grew up in Warburton and had never heard of this secret forest and the 1500 trees that were part of a trial plantation over 50 years ago.
After speaking to a few people that also grew up in the area, it seems I wasn't the only one unaware of these giants in our backyard.
The forest is located about 800m down Cement Creek Rd, on the right. A small patch of gravel is the carpark and you access the forest through a gap next to a closed gate.
The forest floor is covered in a thick carpet of pine needles and the sound of your footsteps is probably the only noise you'll hear. A great place for a quiet walk.
