"The uncrowded Karri Forest" State of Western Australia Off The Beaten Path Tip by iandsmith

  Life at Snake Gully
by iandsmith

If you want to avoid crowds in the famous Karri Forests you don't have to try too hard. There is a well beaten path taken by the majority and then the delights that confront the more adventurous, particularly those who don't mind driving on a bit of dirt.
Big Tree Grove and Snake Gully are two of the treasures you will find on the Great Forest Drive.
The Karri (Eucalyptus diversicolor) are the world's third tallest hardwood and reach almost 90 metres in height and are mature at around 80 years.
It was while in this area that I also learned there is a tree call the Snotty Gobble Tree, which I think must world rank as one of the truly epic names for flora!
