Big Bonsai Tree
Aug 2021
It is a ordinary tree but hurt by storm and the wind bended the tree, and became a big bonsai tree on the road side.

Windswept

There are leaning trees and there are the leaning red river gums of the Greenough area. Some great examples adjacent the Brand Highway with parking bays so that you can stop and take some interesting photos. They get their distinctive lean due to the prevailing southerly winds. There is another great example behind the gardens of the Greenough Museum.

Well, it's a tree!
Jul 2019 • Family
Greenough has some fascinating trees growing perpendicular to the ground due to strong.winds, and you can see them while driving. But the nice thing about this location is there is a gravel area you can safely pull over, some signage explaining about the trees, a rubbish bin, and one particular tree that is close by, and gives great photo opportunities. Fortunately it's right on the main highway so you don't have to go out of your way to stop here.

Is it worth a stop? We were driving by anyway, so it made sense to make a quick stop, take a few photos, and then keep going. So it was worth 5-10 minutes, and they have done a good job in making it safe, plus some signage. But in the end, it's still just a tree.

the power of nature
May 2019 • Couples
before we reached this attraction i had thought what was so special about it as throughout the drive, a lot of trees i saw were slanted. but when i saw this tree i understood why. this leaning tree was literally growing on their side. i was in awe how magnificent nature is, just staring at the tree. very humbling feeling.

Time to stop and take a picture
Aug 2018 • Couples
Very unusual way for trees to grow but if the winds are that strong it’s nature’s way. Very easy place to pull off the road with parking area provided. Was definitely worth a stop and quick pic.

Blown Over
Aug 2018 • Couples
It is free. It is beside the road. No walking required. Why not stop and have a quick look!
It is worth the few minutes to stop and have a look, take a picture - just to see the effect of the wind on trees and how the trees have adapted and thrived.

Giant Bonsai
Jul 2018 • Friends
It kind of looks like a giant Bonsai tree, if you are in the area it's well worth the stop! Great for a picnic!

This is very easily accessible as it is right on the highway with plenty of parking. There is only one tree there now but well worth a stop.
