Maidens Tuart Forest in Bunbury is one of the last remaining Tuart forests in Australia. It is best to explore the superb bush land on foot, with a network of walk trails to choose from. Take the path to the lookout and enjoy the exquisite panoramic views of the coast, the City of Bunbury and the surrounding bush land.
Although located in the metropolitan area, you still get a real sense of being out in the bush. Look out for a multitude of native animals and bird life that have made this forest their home including kangaroos, bandicoots, echidnas and galahs.
Stop at the picnic area to enjoy a barbeque and a play in the play ground before continuing your walk through the forest. Take the path down to the coast to enjoy a refreshing dip in the ocean.
Maidens Tuart Forest is a 2 hour drive south of Perth in the coastal town of Bunbury.
