Open 24 Hours

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.
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!

To drive around a corner and have the most beautiful trees come into view was breathtaking. So hard to describe. You will just have to go visit. Beautiful bush trails to follow through the tallest of trees if your so inclined or you can just take it all in from your car. Magical experience.

Beautiful stop and a definite "must see" when passing through the area. Trees are enormous and humbling. The scenery is absolutely stunning

Stunning lookout across the forest. I hope this is preserved for many years to come. There needs to be more lookouts like this.

We visited early in the morning and had the forest to ourselves - except for the beautiful birds! It was absolute magic! Very disappointing to see however that many of the trees had been defaced. Next visit we will allow extra time so we can enjoy the trails.
