Overview

Towering karri trees, some over 60m in height, undulate across the valley. With sunlight streaming onto their smooth trunks, this is one of the best sights in Your Margaret River Region.

More information

The sight of these enormous trees won’t be the only thing to amaze you. This forest is a feast for the senses with the forest floor tumbling with wildflowers, orchids and funghi (in season) together with the sounds of native birds and the fresh smell of eucalypt.

The forest is an easy 25 minute drive south of Margaret River town along Caves Road. The Karri Lookout on the eastern side of Caves Road is an ideal spot to enjoy and photograph this amazing forest as it undulates across the valley.

Boranup Drive is a fantastic tourist drive. With its hard limestone base it is suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles. The drive winds its way through stunning forest and loops back to Caves Road. Along the drive you’ll find the Boranup Lookout which takes in views across the picturesque forest and the stunning turquoise waters of nearby Hamelin Bay. The lookout also marks the start of some lovely bushwalks and has a great picnic spot. A small campground fitting only seven small tents or small campervans is also available.

For the bird enthusiasts!

Just south of Lake Cave is the gorgeous Boranup Karri Forest. On your drive or walk through you may see Purple- crowned Lorikeet, Splendid Fairy- wren, White- breasted Robin, Crested Strike-tit, Golden Whistler and many other birds!

It is the best spot for viewing the Karri forest. Don’t stay only in the view point. Take your time and cross the road into the woods, you will enjoy!

It is a great place to drive by to view the trees. The place has little traffic which allows people to stand on the road to take a picture or two. Fascinating to see the terrain of the area. Highly reccomended if you are in the area.

Beautiful scenic spot, just watch out for the cars on the road - watched many tourists just miss getting hit because they were too worried about getting the perfect shot from the road.
