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!

Great spot on way to Boranup Drive, where you can see even better parts of the forest. Be careful at entry way - cars can come in to the gravel driveway at speed some times. Be careful crossing the road - not all drivers slow down on Caves Road to the appropriate speed limit.

Perfect place to stop and check out this peaceful Forrest. They have a deck you can walk onto. The road is busy so be careful crossing the street. Beautiful trees, ferns, birds to see. Parking is on one side of the road and can be difficult when large busses pull in. Maybe sure to drive slow when approaching or you will miss the parking area.

Beautiful view on Boranup Forest, it is quiet impressive actually. It has the power of making you feel tiny. It is just on the side of the road so if you are coming on caves road to explore one of the caves, it is worth to stop. I wouldn't make a detour though...
