Redwood Forest

UPDATE 14 July 2020 COVID-19: For the latest information, please see

Discover the Redwood Forest in Warburton - one of the best-kept photography secrets in Melbourne's Yarra Valley. 

The Redwood forest is located just 15min drive from the township of Warburton and is home to the stunning Californian Redwood tree plantation. Get lost amongst the 1476 trees which stand between up to 55m high or walk through the forest, down towards the river, and discover the walking trails. 

Warburton’s Redwood forest is also a well-known location for capturing stunning wedding photography. However, commercial photography shoots will need permission from Parks Victoria. 


You can discover the Redwood Forest by driving through Warburton, following the Warburton Highway until it becomes Woods Point Road. After about 7 km, look for Cement Creek Road on the left. This is unsealed and a little rough in places, but 0.7 km along you will find a small parking area on the right along a fenceline and small gate barrier. Walk through the barrier and there you are!

Please note there are no public toilets at the Redwood Forest. The closest public toilets are located at the East Warburton Public Hall.

If you are wanting to plan a wedding or gathering at the Redwood Forest you will need to contact Parks Vic for a permit.

Dogs cannot be taken in the Redwood Forest as it is a National Park.
