Pialligo Redwood Forest

Natural Attractions

See Walter Burley Griffin’s grove of majestic Redwood trees. Take the self-guided tour along the three kilometre walking track or just relax and enjoy a picnic.

The redwoods were planted against the advice of Canberra’s Arborist, Thomas Charles Weston. Only 3,000 of the original 122,000 planted survived. Despite this, the forest holds the important title of Australia’s largest stand of mature Redwood species.

The Pialligo Redwood Forest is registered on the Commonwealth Heritage List.

In order to protect the Redwoods’ shallow root systems, neither bicycles nor vehicles are allowed in the forest. Dogs on leads are permitted.
