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

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.

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
