Rainforest Gallery (Donna Buang) (Yarra Ranges National Park)

Located within the Yarra Ranges National Park, Rainforest Gallery can be accessed via Donna Buang Road and is only a 10-minute drive from Warburton on the way to Mt Donna Buang summit.

Set in a cool temperate rain forest this elevated platform is perched 15 metres above the forest floor and allows visitors to take in the beauty of the towering Mountain Ash and ancient Myrtle Beech trees, some which are estimated to be over 400 years old.

The 40-metre-long platform is fully accessible from the carpark. There is also a set of approximately 100 stairs that will lead you along a 20 min walk on an elevated walkway. This walk offers multiple viewing areas amongst the forest, where you can pause and enjoy the sounds of Cement Creek flowing past on its journey to the Yarra River.
