Warburton Rainforest Skywalk Gallery


These pix were taken on June 30, 2012, at the Warburton Rainforest Skywalk and Gallery, 10 km from Warburton.



It's at the junction of the Donna Buang Rd and Acheron Way.


This beautiful site 
is at the junction of the Donna Buang Rd and Acheron Way, and features a 40 metre long observation platform (one of only three of its type in Australia) which takes you into the rainforest canopy 15 metres above the ground.

A 350 metre long elevated walkway takes you through the Rainforest Gallery where you will see magnificent 65 metre tall old growth Mountain Ash trees, ancient Myrtle Beech trees (many of which are 300 to 400 years old), ferns, mosses and other plants that make up this damp and diverse rainforest environment.

There are several viewing spots along the walkway where you can pause and enjoy the sounds of Cement Creek flowing past on its journey to the Yarra River.


The observation platform is 40 metres long and has no steps. It has a level floor surface consisting of steel grating suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. Handrails and safety fencing are on the sides of the platform.
