Warburton Mountain Bike Trails and Shuttles
Work is currently underway to plan and build a world class mountain biking hub in and near Warburton. Stage one of the Warburton bike trail involves the development of more than 100 kilometres of new mountain bike trails and connections.
Combining Warburton’s scenic natural environment and village atmosphere, with the Warburton Mountain Bike Destination would promote a healthy community and put Warburton on the national and international tourism radar.

Mt Donna Buang
Mt Donna Buang is located in the Yarra Valley, overlooking Warburton in Victoria. This majestic climb is a favourite for road cyclists and tourists alike.
The summit is 1245m, with a 21m high lookout tower on the summit providing panoramic views of the Yarra Valley, Dandenong Ranges, Melbourne and the Alps.
A great spot for picnics and bushwalking, Mt Donna Buang Summit does receive some snowfall periods during Winter. More details are available on the Visit Yarra Valley website.
La La Falls
The trail to La La Falls is definitely one of the best and most beautiful short walks around Melbourne.
The 3.2km track runs alongside Four Mile Creek, snaking its way under a thick, lush forest canopy over a vibrant under story of ferns, musk daisy bush, blanket-leaf and bootlace bush. The trail traverses the creek over several cute stone bridges to the soundtrack of bubbling water and birdsong. With luck you might even sight a lyrebird, one of the most treasured creatures in the Yarra State Forest. The Falls themselves are serene and are best visited after a rainfall when the flow down the rocky slabs is high.
The walk is named after past landowner Leila Ward, whose guesthouse ‘La La’ was located in the area. (La La fittingly means ‘Welcome Welcome’ in the local indigenous language.)
The walk up to the falls has been delighting visitors since the 1880s and it continues to do so today. To find out more about the walk, see the Visit Warbuton website.
The Waterwheel on the main street of Warburton is your destination for all things Warburton Valley. More than a Visitor Information Centre, The Waterwheel is home to a gorgeous handmade shop, a hub for local wine, an Art Gallery and eco Indoor Forest.
Art also elevates the surrounding parklands to visual experiences that nourish and inspire. Don’t miss the Great Steps of Warburton, a community art project, the historical murals on the railway siding and totem poles. The historic Waterwheel is an icon of the towns ever-evolving story and a great place to stop by.
Find out more about Warburton’s wonderful attractions on the Visit Warburton website.
The trails and tracks of the Warburton Valley provide a range of riding experiences from the gentle cruise to the challenge of endurance events.
Mt Donna Buang is host to the annual Everesting event each February, when a selection of athletes make the 17 kilometre ascent and descent eight times – the equivalent of climbing Mt Everest. Mt Donna Buang climb is a regular feature of many cyclists week – both for training and enjoyment.
Warburton Valley is also a popular destination for cycling club outings, and regularly hosts groups such as the Hells 500, known for their Seven Peaks ride program and many other endurance events including the Giro Del a Donna
As a cycling destination, the Warburton Valley has a growing reputation as one of the most popular places for varied rides, great scenery and a network of terrific support services – which usually begin and end with a coffee at Cog Bike Café.
Redwood Forest Warburton
You may be surprised to discover an amazing forest of California Redwoods just a few kilometres outside Warburton.
According to the Victoria Heritage Database, the California Redwoods were planted by the Board of Works around 1939 after the original eucalypt forest was cleared.
The Californian Redwood trees are significant because of the history and extent of the plantation. There are more than 1400 trees ranging from 20 metres to an impressive 55 metres in height.
To find out more about visiting the Redwood Forest, check out the Visit Warburton website.
Warburton Rainforest Gallery
This beautiful heritage-listed site features a 40m long observation platform which takes you into the rainforest canopy 15m above the ground in the Yarra Ranges National Park near Warburton.
An elevated walkway takes you through the rainforest gallery where you will see magnificent old growth Mountain Ash trees, ancient Myrtle Beech trees (many of which could be up to 300 to 400 years old), ferns, mosses and other plants that make up this damp and diverse rain forest environment.
There are several viewing spots along the walkway where you can pause and enjoy the sounds of Cement Creek flowing past on its journey to the Yarra River.
For more information head to the Visit Yarra Valley website.
Carved into the mountainside above the Upper Yarra Valley, the O’Shannassy Aqueduct Trail makes for a wonderful ride and heading east from Warburton has some real hidden and not-so-hidden gems.
The trail follows an historic, now-disused open water race, built between 1911 and 1914 to channel fresh water from a weir on the O’Shannassy River to Silvan Dam, where it served the then burgeoning population of Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. Now decommissioned, the trail cuts through some the prettiest forest in the Valley.
On their way out to the waterfalls at O’Shannassy Weir, riders cruise past peaceful and tranquil forests of stoic mountain ash and walls of tree ferns, but the real surprise comes with a rare stand of California Redwoods – towering giants that have an almost mystical feel when you stand amongst them. Planted by the Board of Works as part of an experiment in 1930, they are now heritage listed.
