Donna Buang Rainforest Gallery and Skywalk (Warburton)




At Cement Creek, around 10 kilometres from the summit of Mount Donna Buang, is the Rainforest Gallery and Skywalk.

This beautiful site features a 40 metre long observation platform (one of only three of its type in Australia) which takes you into the rainforest canopy 15 metres above the ground. 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 are 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.

Opening Hours:


Open all the time.

Review:


There are two sections; one is a high section about the rainforest looking down and the other is a 350m circuit on a boardwalk through the rainforest. There are a lot of steps and the walkways can be slippery. It is a very pleasant and interesting walk. It is well worth stopping off on the way to the summit.
