Tuart Forest National Park

The narrow strip of tuart (Eucalyptus gomphocephala) forest that links Capel and Busselton is one of the special places of the South-West. The majestic tuart tree grows only on coastal limestone 200 kilometres on either side of Perth. The 2,049-hectare Tuart Forest National Park protects the largest remaining pure forest of tuart in the world. It also has the tallest and largest specimens of tuart trees on the Swan Coastal Plain. Some trees are more than 33 metres high and 10 metres in girth.

Tuart Forest National Park is a day-use area, with a number of beautiful scenic drives. In the open glades of the forest there are many attractive picnic sites, roadside stops and scenic drives to enjoy.
