On our third day in Margaret River, after visiting Prevelly Beach we went for a wonderful drive through the Boranup Forest.
Boranup Forest is known for its stunning Karri trees. These towering trees, some over 60m high, ripple across the valley. This forest is an easy 25 minute drive south of Margaret River town along Caves Road
We drove along the length of Boranup Rd to take in the grandeur of these magnificent trees. The road is gravel but well maintained and fine for 2 wheel drive cars and our mini bus.
The sight of these enormous trees was amazing and the forest was a feast for the senses. The forest floor was tumbling with wildflowers, orchids and funghi together with the sounds of native birds and the fresh smell of eucalypt. The sunlight filtering through the canopy made the whole area mystical.
We walked through this magical place with the trees towering above us and the ground covered in beautiful vegetation. I felt so calm and at peace walking through the forest. There were times where I was transported back to my child hood where I was raised and spent hours exploring and playing in the natural bush and rocks of my own “backyard”
The Karri trees are just simply majestic. The forest is so peaceful and serene. We stopped in one of the designated spots and stepped into a world of birdsong and wind whispering through the leaves. The serenity was amazing.
This is the perfect place to fully enjoy Nature and feed your soul. Experience the beautiful, majestic karri trees surrounding you and all the other sights and sounds peacefully yet powerfully recharging your senses. I felt as though I was enveloped by Mother Nature’s infinite abundance and filled with an inner harmony that will remain with me for a long time.
We took the short walk to Boranup Lookout, where we looked over the sweeping views of the forest and the coast and the stunning turquoise waters of nearby Hamelin Bay. It was another magic moment.
This forest with its stunning far reaching views, towering regal trees, windflowers that colour the forest floor and limestone rocks that frame it all is a photographers dream.
