To witness one of the biggest living trees in Victoria that is estimated to be over 300 years old is an honor!! That’s right the giant Mountain Ash is said to be over 300 years old. It is also one of the largest known flowering trees in the world!!
How often do you get to see a tree in nature reaching about 76metres up to the sky with a circumference of 15metres?
For us it was a first. Not only is the destination a spectacle but also the walk from the car park through the myrtle beech forest to the Ada Tree is spectacular. It is absolutely beautiful, one of the lushest we have explored in a long time.
There are so many healthy green tree ferns which are towered by the assortment of trees. As you walk along the formed track there is signage explaining the forest.
Once we reached the Ada tree we just stood there in awe….it truly is a magnificent tree. It is extremely hard to take in how old it is and tall!!
If you love nature this place is not to be missed. It really is a nature lovers haven.
How Long Is The Walk To The Ada Tree?
The walk from the car park is 3.4km return, it takes approximately 1.5hrs and is an easy walk. The walk is made a lot easier as you are surrounded by lush green ferns which are towered by the tall Mountain Ash trees that are so beautiful they take your mind of the walk.
Other Walking Tracks
There are a few walking tracks to explore, for us we opted for the 3.4km return walk which was well worth the journey.
At the car park they provide information on the other walking tracks which are available.
The car park is quite spacious, you’ll find a picnic table which is a great place to unwind and refuel before heading off to your next destination.
Toilets are located at the car park.
The walk is not suitable for wheelchairs, however if you call in advance you can make arrangements to take a different route which is wheel chair friendly.
