We were surprised to see the sign for the Redwood Forest, and were very glad we stopped. It has easy access, right off the road. The forest was planted by Oregon Goldrush men in 1938. It was quiet, serene, and mystic. Interesting contrast of California...More

It's a nice little grove of quite big non-native trees. I quite enjoyed the 10 minutes we spent wandering aroung them, it was peaceful and a nice spot with a little river running alongside. No doubt in another 100 years these already impressive trees will...More

This grove of redwoods is large and pleasant to walk through, with the river running past on one side. Worth a quick visit if you're in the area.

The redwoods are eerily lovely but, it is a tiny patch of forest down 5km of unpaved road. If it is muddy, then you may want to avoid the route down the road. If you are already in the area visiting the nearby waterfalls then...More

Follow the pathway into the Redwood forest and be careful not to trip on the roots as you gaze upwards, in awe, at these magnificent, towering trees. Once Inside, you're enveloped by the peaceful sounds of nature... the running water in the creek, the wind...More

Up the road from Hopetoun and beuchamp waterfalls, this majestic place is so peaceful and to see and smell these trees is worthwhile stop. You could even film a horror movie here by night if you were keen!
