Boranup Forest

Boranup, in the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River in the South West region of Western Australia, is the site of a large coastal dune blow out known as the "Boranup sand patch" as part of the Boranup beach, and the site of a former M. C. Davies timber company mill. The sand patch area and sand blows affected the alignment of the Busselton to Flinders Bay railway.
