Tuart Forest National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Once found growing along the coastal strip stretching 200 km north of Perth and down south through the coastal region of the South West region, the Tuart Forest National Park contains the largest remaining pure Tuart (Eucalyptus gomphocephala) forest in the world. This unique forest also has the tallest and largest living tuart trees to be found on the Swan Coastal Plain, with some trees reaching more than 33 metres in height and 10 metres in diameter.

The Tuart Forest National Park is a day-use park, offering beautiful scenic drives, open glades for picnics and roadside stops. A great place for some night spot lighting of wildlife.
 

Flora and Fauna
Among the tuart trees can be found peppermint trees proving secondary storey growth. There are remnant patches of several plant species including fungi, some species which have yet to be named. The trees provide an abundance of nesting hollows that are used by waterbirds that feed in the adjacent wetlands and the endangered nguarer (western ringtail possum). Other wildlife include the koomal (brushtail possum), wambenger (brush-tailed phascogale), quenda (southern brown bandicoot), bush rat, kangaroo, several species of birds of prey and nocturnal birds.
