Ludlow Tuart Forest Restoration Group

Ludlow, Western Australia

Ngala kaadatj nidja Wadandi boodja
We acknowledge we are in Wadandi country and pay our respects to elders past and present

Our Objective ...

is to restore and protect the iconic Ludlow Tuart Forest, and the heritage listed Ludlow mill and settlement for the benefit of future generations, biodiversity, tourism, education and research.

We need your help

We need volunteers to help us with the Ludlow Art Prize exhibition and the Spring in the Forest event in October 2023

The Ludlow Art Prize will be awarded for the best Australian landscape painting and the best Sculpture. The competition is open to artists who reside in the South West of WA

We need trades and volunteer help to restore one of our Ludlow buildings to create the Ludlow Gallery. Everyone needs an art gallery! Currently, it's a pre-loved 1940`s heritage listed timber and iron shed with lots of character. We just need to keep the character and fill in the holes!

We will also need help during the lead-up to the art prize opening and exhibition Wednesday 4 to Sunday 8 October 2023

Our Spring in the Forest event was a huge success last year with around 2,500 people attending. This year, the event is on Sunday 8 October 2023 (yes, same weekend as the art prize and exhibition)

We need around 80 volunteers on the day to assist with parking, exhibits, information, activities and few people, just to help keep the rest of us sane
