Federal Mill camping area (walk-in camping)
Like Ada No. 2 Mill, Federal Mill is an overnight camping option for hikers who are tackling all or part of the Walk into History Trail between Powelltown and Warburton. It’s not far south of the soaring, 300-year-old Ada Tree, which sits in myrtle beech rainforest. The Federal Mill site is accessed from the Highlead carpark up on the Noojee–Powelltown Rd.

This campsite is located in Yarra State Forest
The mighty mountain ash trees swaying gently in the breeze are a big drawcard for visitors to Yarra State Forest, located 75 km east of Melbourne via the Eastern Fwy. Walking trails reveal waterfalls and the majesty of the local tree line, and show the route of an old logging-industry tramline. From Yarra Junction or Warburton, drive into the forest to Powelltown.
