6 Free Activities for Families in the Warburton Valley

See & Do Family

Getting the kids off screens, out and about doesn’t need to be expensive. The Warburton Valley has so many things to do that are free for families – and fun.

We are blessed with many natural assets in the Warburton Valley that are easy to access and free of charge. Children are genuinely free in the Warburton Valley – free to explore, stretch their legs, and enjoy quality time out with their families.

Here are our top 6 free activities in the Warburton Valley:

  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 the Redwood Forest – take a picnic and enjoy a great day amid the tall trees.
  3. Take a bike ride along the Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail and stop for ice cream in one of the towns along the way. Bring your own bikes (or hire from Cog Bike Hire for a small fee).
  4. Swim in the Yarra River and enjoy 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 beautiful walk along the forest track to the falls. What wildlife will you spot along the way
  6. Check out the beautiful Ada Tree, one of Victoria's largest trees and it's more than 300 years old. The walk is an easy 3.2km, 1.5 hour walk return trip from the car park and picnic area to the Ada Tree and back again.
