Boranup Forest

Boranup, in the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River, is the site of a large coastal dune blow out known as the "Boranup sand patch" as part of the Boranup beach,[1] and the site of a former M. C. Davies timber company mill.[2] The sand patch area and sand blows also affected the alignment of the Busselton to Flinders Bay railway.

It is also a karri forest remnant area[3] in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park as well as a Western Australian State Forest area.[4][5]

Boranup Forest contains many limestone karst caves including Nannup Cave and Dingo Cave.

The Boranup area also includes private property, a cafe and a gallery, a maze and a scenic drive.
