This is a stunning walk through the Yarra State Forest that takes in the magnificent 75m high mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans), known as the Ada Tree. The walk itself meanders through eucalypt (mountain Ash) forest and rainforest, there is abundant bird life and you might be lucky enough to see or hear a Lyre Bird.

A familiar story i’m sure; The last weekend before you’re due back at the office, you’ve spent all Saturday completing all those little jobs you’d been putting off doing till the holidays and then somehow didn’t manage to get around to.

The answer, a nice day out with the family somewhere scenic and preferably on the shady side!
