Powelltown - Ada Tree




Walk through rainforest to the Ada Tree, a giant mountain ash that's one of Victoria's largest trees. Around 270 years old, it's about 76 metres tall with a circumference of 15 metres.

Walk details are:
Location: Near Noojee, Yarra State Forest
Distance: 3.2km return
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

How to get there: From Melbourne, head east along the Princes Freeway (M1), turn left at the Drouin exit (C426) and follow the signs to Noojee. From Noojee, follow Yarra Junction–Noojee Road (C425) and turn at Big Creek Road (unsealed). The trail begins at the car park.

The turn-off to Big Creek Road is 23 km from Yarra Junction and then it is 24 km along Big Creek Road which is a forest road.

Review:


Make sure you access the Ada Tree via Big Creek Road which is a turnoff from the Yarra Junction - Noojee Road. Other routes are only suitable for four wheel drive vehicles. The car park is 24 km from the main turnoff. The walk to the tree is through a lovely environment with information boards along the way. The tree has a massive girth of 15m and has a boardwalk around it. You can get to the tree via the 1.5km long Island Creek track or the less interesting 1.8 km Management Vehicle Track. There is a shelter with tables at the car park.
