About this place
From wheat field to a field of karri! Now over 130 years old, The 100 Year Forest stands as a living demonstration of how the karri forest can regrow into a diverse, mature forest after being completely cleared.
The Wheat Field Loop provides you with an opportunity to explore this magnificent karri forest on foot and see an example of natural regeneration from formerly cleared farm land.
