The artwork for the Original Colour Lithograph was created by Percival Albert (Percy) Trompf and published for Australian National Travel Association [ANTA] during the 1930's.

Located in the foothills of Melbournes closest alpine resort are the villages of Marysville, Buxton, Taggerty and Narbethong. Situated 90 minutes from Melbourne in the charming Yarra Valley, Marysville and surrounds is an ideal destination for nature lovers.

The Lilydale to Healesville via Yarra Glen railway line was officially opened in 1889. The electrification and development of the Melbourne suburban lines commenced in 1919 and by the 1930s the Yarra Valley was accessible to sightseers from Melbourne.

Trompfs towering trunks were located in the Cumberland Valley. The Valley was an area which in response to a public protest against the logging of the giant Mountain Ash trees, was proclaimed a scenic tourist reserve in 1929. Trompfs trees were in the Sample Acre of Tall Trees whose dense understorey was cleared by Victorias Forests Commission in preparation for the visit of the British Empire Forestry Conference in 1928.
