It was a bit crowded with families and couples and the car park was a bit tight but there was peace amongst the giants. Very nice.
The logging area above the giants wasn’t very pleasant and made me angry but, once in the wild, a calm overtook me. I’d probably go earlier next time to avoid said families/couples/parking issues.
Still recommended though.

If you're looking for some gorgeous photo opportunities in the forest, this is the place to go for them. The trees and creek were very tranquil, and while we didn't have time to fully explore the area, we enjoyed the time we did spend there. The car park is very small but was empty at the time of our visit. Be aware that the nearby toilet is a drop toilet!! We learnt this the hard way. The road is also unsealed and has lots of bumps and turns.

This a beautiful spot to have a picnic and enjoy the ambience of the park. There is a lovely creek running which is a real photo stop. The trees are magnificent and huge. You certainly can get some amazing panoramic photos. If you need to go to the toilet, cross the road and walk up the hill a little and there are clean long drop toilets with toilet paper and also a water tank for cleaning your hands. Congratulations to the national park staff for providing this! A great stop and worth the drive. We actually took the Beech Road to enjoy the forestry as well which I would highly recommend.

Massive Californian Redwoods tower above the small people below. Beautiful scenery but sad when you consider the trees are an introduced species. It's a lovely place to reach at lunchtime for a feast & chill amoungst the giants.

Highly recommend this little stretch of redwood forest. Spend sometime wondering amongst these peaceful giants of the tree world. Pick a quiet day non weekend to have the place to yourself.

A beautiful place to visit. It’s a small forest of tall redwood trees. An easy walk through & not slippery despite the rain. Only spoilt somewhat by a noisy group of children shouting.
We had a lovely drive down to the carpark, but made the mistake of heading back over the bridge onto an unsealed road that turned out to be a logging track. It was manageable but we had a decent car & a confident driver. If you don’t, turn around & go back the way you came down.
Otherwise enjoy this beautiful spot, definitely visit if you are in the area.

It is magical to walk amongst these huge towering trees and experience the majesty of the Californian Redwood forest with the sound of the creek nearby. You are immersed in the wonder of nature. Most people were respectful of the quiet and peace, although there were a bunch of teenagers that wanted to run and yahoo with their exuberance (forgivable). We were waiting for them to fall in crossing the mossy logs across the creek. Also the parking is very limited. Really worthwhile stopping here.

Decided to do a bit of a detour from the Great Ocean Rd towards Beech Forest.

We rounded a corner and found this place. I'm so glad we decided to stop.

The Redwoods are spectacular to see up close and the area is so quite and peaceful.

Stop the car. Get out. Have a look.

It's easy access into the redwoods from the small parking area.

To visit the Redwood Forest near Beech Forest, one will need a car or bike. We picked up a 'Walking and Driving Tour' flyer in Beech Forest. To get to the Redwoods from Beech Forest. Turn into Binns Road, one will drive past unfortunately logged forests, finally one will arrive at the Redwood Forest, located next to a small bridge. The car park is small, it has a sign explaining the trees here, and other tall trees around the world.
The area is amazing, and peaceful. There is a small creek also to look at.
One could take a pram into the area, not sure about a wheel chair.
Next to the car park is one picnic table. Not sure about a public toilet. Leaving the forest to drive towards the sea. Expect the road to be very windy and long.

TBH. Not as nice as the Warburton California Redwoods forest. And not as many but in saying that it's still lovely place to visit. Always tranquil spots to wander. It's not as flat as the other too, so be wary if mobility is an issue.
