Sojourn off the highway just north of Busselton and take Tuart Drive, the tourist drive which loops through the last remaining tuart forest in the world.
This is a magnificent ancient forest with 300 - 400 year old trees standing on average 33m high, with girths of a massive 10m. Wide open vistas can be enjoyed, with scenes of massive trees, understorey of peppermint trees, wildflowers and large mobs of kangaroos. 

There are several sign posted walks in the forest and picnic spots to enjoy and contemplate the sights, smells and sounds of the forest. Night time in the forest is just as spectacular as this is when the animals get busy. A great location to watch life in the forest take place is the nocturnal possum walk. Hides along the trail allow you to spotlight for the endangered western ringtail possum, brush tailed possum, kangaroos and nocturnal birds of prey including tawny frogmouth owls.

The forest is bordered by the Wonnerup wetland which has an abundance of waterbirds, frogs and reptiles which contribute significantly to the food chain of the forest. Visit the wetland boardwalk and watch the birdlife against the backdrop of the forest.
