East Warburton Redwood Forest

Hidden in East Warbuton is a magical redwood forest that makes you feel like a Hobbit carrying the ring to Mordor. This mystical place is located on Cement Creek Road, the powers of the forest are so strong that they ward off phone reception, I didn't even care that I couldn't check my Instagram, the surrounding was just too peaceful to make me care about the outside world.

The Redwood Forest became popular on Instagram thanks to David Digapony, who created some exquisite wooden sculptures that enhanced the mysticism of the giant redwoods. Unfortunately when I made my visit, the 'authorities' had taken the sculptures down, for what reason I don't know, but the remnants have created something that looks like a massive bird nest – great photo opportunities await. Follow David (@wild_and_woven) so you can stay up to date with his latest work.

Once you're done soaking in the breathtaking beauty, walk to the other side of the forest and follow the path. You'll soon hear the distant sounds of gushing water, follow the sound you'll come to a beautiful river, – it's just another great gift from this magnificent forest.

HOW TO GET THERE: Drive on the Warburton Hwy through Warburton and you'll come to a fork between Donna Buang Road on the left and Woods Point Road on the right, take Woods Point Road. Continue on this road and turn left into Cement Creek Road (it's a gravel road). Pass the bridge and keep going until you see the forest on your right, you can park there. Walk through the gap next to the gate, adventure awaits…
