Karri trees in the heart of the forest as we were driving through it.
Thanks to Nadine Henley and Wendy Slee for telling me about this magical forest. I was so in awe of the splendour I was pretty much speechless. Felt like I was in Europe somewhere, not Western Australia. Definitely a place to revisit perhaps on a late afternoon in winter.
“The area, which is part of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, is also well known for its wildflowers that colour the forest floor during spring.
Boranup Karri Forest is unique for its proximity to the coast. This is the furthest west that the tall pale-barked karri trees grow. Karris can reach 60 metres or more in height and cover the hilly slopes and valleys of the forest.
There’s a stunning scenic drive through the forest which is suitable for convention vehicles. You’ll feel dwarfed by the massive trees that line the road.”
Also there are many walk trails within the forest and here is a link to information about one of them.
