Redwood Forest (Warburton)



A forest of Californian Redwoods, Sequoia Sempervirens, located a few kilometres outside Warburton is one of the regions best kept secrets.

The Californian Redwood trees were planted by the Board of Works about 1930 following clearing of the original eucalypt forest. Trees planted were Bishop Pine, Douglas Fir and Californian Redwood. Further plantings of Radiata Pine, Western Red Cedar and Redwood took place in 1960–63. The plantations were selected for experimental purposes as part of the Board’s hydrology research program.

There are over 1476 trees ranging from 20 metres to the tallest being 55 metres. They have been planted in a grid and are aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

There are hiking trails, which were originally the access tracks, which pass through and around the Plantation.

Directions - Drive through Warburton, following the Warburton Highway until it becomes Woods Point Road. After about 7 km, turn left on Cement Creek Road. This is unsealed and a bit rough in places. After 0.7 km you will find a small parking area on the right along a fence line and small gate barrier. Walk through the barrier.
