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

The drive through this region was one of amazement at the quantity of huge tall is a small area. It is worth while stopping and just admiring the trees and take a few photos.

Make sure to stop at the lookout to enjoy the views and smells of this fairy tale forest. It is magical. There is a carpark right behind the lookout.

This forest was ravaged for its wonderful timber in the 1880s and was the source of much wealth in the form of timber shipped out to London from nearby Hamelin Bay. It's fully recovered, and a beautiful place nowadays. Take the loop-drive through the forest, especially after rain, for beautifully scented air. Stop off at the look out. Or stop... More

Not worth driving in the Karri Forest, nothing special, these trees are all over any driveway in Perth.

A beautiful drive through the tall trees on an iconic dirt road, peaceful and well worth the slight detour off the main road.

I am told that the old-growth karri forests further inland are taller, but the regrowth forest at Boranup is tall enough to be impressive. Even though I have seen much taller trees in North America, there is something special about huge eucalypts that shed their bark and stand naked. If you just want to see trees from a car, you...
