Known as the Jewel of the Otways, this is one of the wettest places in the state. The gully has prolific plant growth and is a dense rainforest of Myrtle Beech, Blackwood and Tree-ferns, with an understorey of low ferns and mosses.

Perhaps the most unusual inhabitants of the area are the glow worms, which can be seen at night along the walking tracks.

The 35 minute Madsen's Track Nature Walk departs from the picnic area, providing an adventure into a world of ancient, mossy trees and cool fern gullies.

Picnic tables, a gas barbecue and toilets are provided at this site. Camping is not permitted.
