Boranup Forest is part of the Leeuwin–Naturaliste National Park. Surround yourself with towering karri trees, birds and possums. The sunlight streaming through the forest is a photographer's dream. There is a lot to see and do, plus beautiful campsites amongst the Karri and Peppermint trees are available. The drive through the forest is 2WD but you will need a 4WD... More

Boranup Drive is basically a dirt road in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by stunning karri forest. We decided to park somewhere off the side that looked suitable and go for a walk on one of the many tracks. It was so beautiful, would highly recommend. You could do this in a 2wd if confident.

This was incredible! I'm not from Australia, and I had no idea there was this kind of landscape with so much lush fauna and flora. It is a must when visiting the southwest. My partner is from Australia and took me to a free cave in the forest that not many people know about, it was amazing! If you love... More

Take the Boranup Drive, a gravel road suitable for two-wheel drive sedans through the karri and mixed eucalyptus forest. The trees are beautiful and the forest is healthy. Also, just north of the northern entrance to the drive on Caves Road is a pullout in a fantasy-like section of the forest that has to be seen to be believed.

as a photographer, the karri forests are just stunning and if you get the right light you can spend hours in the forests.

We drove through the Boranup Forest when we were down south in early Jan. It is absolutely spectacular! Apparently one of the oldest forests in the world, it has the tallest trees I have ever seen. You feel like you're in a Jurassic Park movie, with all the fern and the Karri. Totally worth a detour!

When we were leaving Augusta, we detoured through Boranup Karri Forest on Caves Road to look at the trees. There is also a gravel road through the forest. The trees are very tall and really straight. There is a stopping area and view point positioned at a really picturesque bit. Well worth the drive when in the area.

The Karri forest is one of the iconic landmarks WA has to offer, and you simply cannot miss it driving south on Caves Rd from Margaret River. You will see a tall forest and diverse southwestern flora unique to the region. The best way is to park up near the lookout and follow one of the trials that lead through... More
