Explore: Try ‘forest bathing’ in one of WA’s stunning national parks

‘Forest bathing’ is the healing way of Shinrin-yoku Forest Therapy, the medicine of simply being in the forest. Shinrin-yoku is a term that means ‘taking in the forest atmosphere’ or ‘forest bathing’. It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine. Discover the proven health benefits of being in nature and try some ‘forest bathing’ in one of these stunning forests: Walpole-Nornalup National Park with its giant karri and tingle trees; Leeuwin- Naturaliste National Park, with the unforgettable Boranup Forest; Wandoo National Park with its beautiful wandoo woodlands, and many more. From the jarrah and karri of the south-west, to the remnant areas of rainforest in the Kimberley, and the Great Western Woodlands in the Goldfields which represent the largest and most intact eucalypt woodland remaining in southern Australia.
