This beautiful site features a 40 metre long observation platform which takes you into the rainforest canopy 15 metres above the ground in the Yarra Ranges National Park near Warburton. A 350 metre long elevated walkway takes you through the Rainforest Gallery where you will see magnificent 65 metre tall old growth Mountain Ash trees, ancient Myrtle Beech trees (many of which could be up to 300 to 400 years old), ferns, mosses and other plants that make up this damp and diverse rainforest environment.
There are several viewing spots along the walkway where you can pause and enjoy the sounds of Cement Creek flowing past on its journey to the Yarra River.
The observation platform is 40 metres long and has no steps. It has a level floor surface consisting of steel grating suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. Handrails and safety fencing are on the sides of the platform. Below the observation platform is a 350metre long elevated walkway that meanders down into a rainforest gully. This section has many steps and is not suitable for strollers, walking frames or wheelchairs.
