What can you discover hidden in the forest?
The Children's Forest is a community inspired forest, that has been planted by children and their parents, for children.

At the entrance

It is within Whiteman Park, in the northern suburbs. Situated between the village and Mussel Pool area, it is a pleasant one kilometre walk to reach.

Once you enter the Children's Forest, you will discover all manner of strange animals such as giant ants, possums in trees, colourful birds and the guardian of the forest "The Boy of the Bush".

The idea of the forest came from new members of Men of the Trees who wanted to teach their children the value of nature and to have a physical link with nature.

The first stage was planted in 2001 and every year a new stage is added, as more members join the tree planting. Entry to the forest is free and people of all ages are encouraged to enter and explore.

You can also join as a Friend of the Children's Forest, and for a registration fee receive a certificate and a personalised tile which is mounted in the forest.

Whiteman Park is open every day of the year. Enter by Beechboro Rd or Lord St, Whiteman.
