The redwoods are eerily lovely but, it is a tiny patch of forest down 5km of unpaved road. If it is muddy, then you may want to avoid the route down the road. If you are already in the area visiting the nearby waterfalls then...More

Follow the pathway into the Redwood forest and be careful not to trip on the roots as you gaze upwards, in awe, at these magnificent, towering trees. Once Inside, you're enveloped by the peaceful sounds of nature... the running water in the creek, the wind...More

Such wonderful trees - and they are just going to get bigger and bigger. This is a beautiful, peaceful place. Easy to find, the Redwoods are just a short walk from the car park.

Up the road from Hopetoun and beuchamp waterfalls, this majestic place is so peaceful and to see and smell these trees is worthwhile stop. You could even film a horror movie here by night if you were keen!

The Californian Redwood forest is well worth the visit. The atmosphere inside the forest is meditative and quiet, as you take in the sheer size of the trees. Take the road in from the top, rather than from Apollo Bay, as the narrow and corrugated...More

This is a marvellous forest to visit to see the California Red Gum trees. Lovely and cool on a hot day with a lovely stream running through it.
