After a very dusty long winding dirt track .and an easy trek to the tree...I gave thee tree a big hug...you can really feel the history of this tree. Sat at the picnic table for lunch...It was worth the drive ,we didn't have a 4...More
It's a 24 km journey off the main road along a well maintained gravel road.
Take it slow as road narrow and winding and log trucks use some of the route.
Beautiful majestic Mountain Ash tree's and many tree ferns.
Large car park and picnic...More
Destination Ada is worth the long drive from inner suburbia or a sidetrip on your way elsewhere. The main Ada tree carpark has pit Toilets and covered areas with tables and benches (not sure about Bbq). Camping grounds at Starling Gap about 10 kms away....More
We were lucky enough to visit and no one else was there, incredible walk - so many ancient trees and incredible forest along the way.
Saw lots of great funghi all along our walk and the Ada tree itself is phenomenal so worth the walk....More
Lovely walk in through the bush though its a fair way in from the turn off. Easy car parking. The board walk could be accessed via the services track if wheelchair access needed but you'd need to contact the Parks people to unlock the gate.

I took Brahams Road and Big Creek Road from Warburton East & my hatchback managed the unsealed roads, although narrow and most corners...More
My partner and I travelled up to see the Ada tree a few weeks at. The walk at the tree is beautiful, all rainforest and local wildlife.
But dont forget to bring some hiking boots as the walking track to get in isnt the best....More
Not as easy to access as I thought it would be. GPS took us the scenic route there which was definitely interesting but tricky because the "road" was only big enough for one car. Thought we were lost many times and had to do a...More
We got lost trying to find the starting point to the Ada Tree. It was wet, cold, and muddy but still well worth seeing this historical tree.
I would advise though taking the back road behind the car park. It is much easier and much...More

Hi Ada tree is a giant mountain Ash located in Powelltown in the Yarra Ranges. Its a 300 year old tree standing at 76metres in height and the circumference 17 metres. Its considered to be one of Victoria's largest. Its also a beautiful place to bush walk as it has dense forest.
