Children are free in the Warburton Valley - Top 6 activities

See & Do

8 Sep. 2021

Getting out and about this long weekend needn’t be expensive. The Warburton Valley has so many things to do that are free for families – and fun too.

We are blessed with many natural assets in the Warburton Valley and they are all easy to access and free of charge.

Here’s our top 6 free activities – this weekend you can try them all!

  1. Walk in the trees at the Rainforest Gallery – the elevated walk is a seriously memorable occasion that your family will talk about forever
  2. Discover the magical pathways in among the Redwood Forest giant sequias – take a picnic, make a nest
  3. Take a bike ride along the Warburton to Lilydale Trail. Stop for an icecream in one of the towns along the way. Bring your own bikes (or hire from Cog Bike Hire for a small fee)
  4. Take a swim in the Yarra River, hours of fun whether you’re paddling on the edge, feeding the ducks (peas are better for them than bread please), swimming or taking your lilo down the ‘rapids’. Have a picnic too!
  5. Walk to a waterfall – La La Falls is a wonderful walk along the forest track to the falls. What wildlife will you spot along the way?
  6. Climb a mountain – Mt Donna Buang has many walking tracks from the easy to the challenging. Don’t forget to collect your free mountain fresh spring water at the 10 Mile Carpark!

Nature is the best antidote to a world of ‘too much screentime’, or ‘too much to do’.

Children are truly tree in the Warburton Valley – free to explore, free to stretch their legs and their minds, and free to enjoy quality time out with their families.

Come for a day or a week – explore the world and find your self... in nature.
