Good stop off point on the way up to Mt. Donna Buang.

Easy walk from rainforest canopy to elevated trail. Loved the bell birds and many forest sounds. It takes just 10 minutes to complete and toilets are near by.

... well there is peace if you get there early and enjoy it with few people there. Part of the beauty of this place is how old and quiet is us. Tree ferns, towering trees, high canopy deck and a walkway through the bottom of the bush looking up at the trees. Very beautiful and well done. The car park... More

This beautiful natural attraction is a short drive out of Warburton through magificent forest; the short walk out to the platform (a few steps) places you high up amongst the tall trees, and/or walk down a very well maintained metal walkway to the tumbling stream through dense and stunning forest. We went just after autumn rain...stunning!

This is a suspended walkway, up amongst the trees, to allow visitors to venture into the forest without damaging delicate local ecosystems. Moving quietly you can occasionally see activity of small animals below, as well as appreciating the Nature of the forest without leaving a compacted track or giving access to trail and off-road bike hoons. There is parking near... More

We loved walking through this beautiful place. Very easy for someone with bad knees. The ferns were everywhere and loved the sun shinning through the huge trees.

More interesting than the Redwood Forest, but also small in size. I was here less than an hour. This attraction has public toliets but no picnic tables insight. Being so high up meant it had a cool breeze in summer.

Great to be both up at the tree canopy level, and then climb down to the forest floor. Easy steps, but with the wire floor not suitable for dog's feet.

The temperature was blisteringly hot as we drove the few short kilometres from Warburton up the hill to the Mount Donna Buang turn-off, where to our right lies the Rainforest Gallery. As indicated by others, there's no gallery to speak of, rather it's a simple and easy walk along a well constructed walking path/platform. You traverse a relatively small loop... More

We weren't sure what to expect with the Rainforest Gallery- we actually thought it was going to be an art gallery- but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The viewing platform takes you 15 meters high to stand amongst the giant trees, and the walking platform below winds you through the forest, stopping with viewing points at the rock... More
