Ludlow Tuart Forest Restoration Group

Ludlow, Western Australia

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 are open for business!

The former forestry District Office was re-opened by the Hon. Nola Marino MP, Federal Member for Forrest on Sunday 9 October 2022 at the Ludlow Spring in the Forest event.

The office and mill compound will be open to the public for two days a week, commencing Wednesday 12 October 2022. Come along and visit our Tuart Forest display and marvel at the hard work done by our volunteers.

Talk to us about our masterplan for the Ludlow settlement to completely restore this heritage listed site and turn it into a major tourist attraction.

Opening times

Wednesdays (9am to 12 midday)
Sundays (10am to 2pm)

More volunteers, more opening times. If you would like to help, just send us a quick message on our Contact page.
