“If you come to Warburton, take the time to go and see the Ada Tree. It's a giant Mountain Ash and considered to be one of Victoria's largest living trees. You won't be sorry, it really puts things in perspective. Beautiful bush land, and an easy walk from the carpark. Detailed map in the folder in your room.”

“Make sure you take the turn off with the big sign and nothing else. Google Maps had me on a 4x4 trail that was rough before I turned back and discovered where I'd gone wrong.”
