Warburton Habitat Tree is based in the Waterwheel Building in the beautiful township of Warburton, 72km east of Melbourne. Warburton Habitat Tree offers Eco Tours to groups and student education programs that promote the long term conservation of Victoria’s native forests, wildlife and aquatic ecosystems.
Warburton is the furthermost township along the Yarra River, lies down-stream of the Upper Yarra Reservoir and is surrounded by a variety of unique ecosystems and conservation significant natural environments. This special place provides Melbourne with 80% of its drinking water, boasts the oldest living forest type in the world and the tallest flowering plant in the world.
With an abundance of native flora and fauna, the Yarra Ranges National Park and the Yarra State Forest offer a richly diverse opportunity to explore the Ash Forests of Victoria. Home to our critically endangered State bird and animal emblems, the Warburton Valley is the perfect place for our Eco Tours, Education Programs and the Indoor Forest!
