Bundaleer Forest is one of the nation’s most beautiful forests, courtesy of the vast diversity of exotic and native species planted by foresters in the 1870s in their bid to find the most suitable timber plantation tree.

The forest is glorious all year round, but the most striking time to visit Bundaleer is in autumn, when the foliage of the maples, oaks, elms and poplars graduates from summer greens to hues of yellow, red, orange and lime.
