I got to experience this cool home-away-from-home forest due to some friends from church, who planned a New Year's Eve barbecue lunch with a bunch of other people out in the Yarra Valley about seven kilometers from the forest, which we explored afterwards.
|They're not too big around yet, but they're already quite tall!|
Edit (1/1/2018): Have a few more pictures I didn't have time to include last night:
|The Yarra River, where we had the barbecue before going to the redwoods, in the beautiful Yarra Valley.|
|Most trees here are between 55 and 80 meters tall (180–288 feet).|
|One feature not usually present in Californian redwood forests are these large man-made bird nests.|
|And while there may not be any banana slugs here naturally, it's nothing a few minutes with GIMP can't fix!|
