About this park
Logged of all large timber in the late 1800’s, Harewood Forest has recovered and is a great example of regrowth karri forest.
Now you can walk among the tall karris and the whispery fronds of the karri oak with their lush undergrowth of tassel flower and karri hazel. Small birds such as red-winged fairy-wrens and white-breasted robins flit through the understorey while purple-crowned lorikeets chatter loudly in the tree tops when the karri is in blossom.
Harewood Forest is a great place to see the fungi which miraculously appear during the wetter months of the year.
Harewood Forest Walk Trail – Class 3 2.8km Allow 1 hour.
You can follow the Scotsdale Brook and learn about the history of Denmark and this forest from the interpretive signage along the way. Return the way you came or follow the rest of the loop up through the karri forest for pretty views back through the valley.
