We visited the Ada Tree last October. It wasn't a planned visit but we were glad to have made the detour. We even found a new "twisty tree" to continue our photo tradition!
When Nissa visited, we really wanted to take her updated "twisty tree" pic - and show her the Ada Tree! We were close to the end of her stay when we set off on the 150km long drive to the Yarra State Forest.
We drove a different route to that used for our previous visit and were pleased to finally spot Starling Gap camping area as everyone needed their late lunch!
It was a pleasant picnic spot. We saw both a yellow and a flame robin flitting about. I read a little of the saw milling history on an information board attached to the picnic shelter.
We went for a short walk after lunch but encountered quite a few leeches, so very quickly returned to the car!
Further along the road was the Ada Tree access carpark. We did a new series of "twisty tree" shots, before Erin returned to the car and the rest of us continued to the Ada Tree. Vaughan walked reluctantly but eventually enjoyed communing with nature - particularly when he and a frog "talked" for a long time!
