Lovely part of the Caves road drive, feels like some of the big trees close in around you part of the drive is very dense with I think they are Tuart trees and Karri trees may be some Jarrah mixed in with them. There is a curve in the road where a photo show is worth the stop and you... More

Definitley worth the detour if you have the time. There is a really good bird hide and possum trail across from the picnic spot, with easy access and short trails.

Alternative route to Busselton off the Bussell Hwy. Spectacular tall trees and canopy of green. Wildlife can be seen often.

What an excellent mini-detour. Off the Busselton - Bunbury highway without losing miles. This short drive shows off the remnants of an extensive coastal forest of Tuart. The trees were harvested for their very dense timber and were cleared for agriculture. They are unique to the limestone coastal environment of Western Australia.

A pleasant drive on sealed road just off main highway. Some great views of isolated Tuart Forrest however a little underwhelming

Just past Capel on the way to Busselton the Tuart Forest Drive is signposted on the right. The distance is about the same as the bypass but the drive is so much nicer. Magnificent Tuart trees, very little traffic, no big trucks and a truly delightful taste of nature in all it's grandeur

The Ludlow Tuart Forest is adored by nature lovers. With it's tall tuart trees, kangaroos and other nocturnal native animals it is simply beautiful. I suggest just packing a picnic, finding a spot and sitting and enjoying the sounds of the bush while keeping your eyes open for the kangaroos.

Worth taking a few minutes extra to leave the main highway and enjoy this very pleasant alternative route to Busselton/Port Geographe.
