Green Triangle Forest (Limestone Coast)

About the Green Triangle Forest

ForestrySA manages more than 12,500ha of Native Forest across the Green Triangle forest district in the Limestone Coast, and facilitates public access to plantations leased to OneFortyOne.

These forests have long been popular for their biodiversity and abundance of natural features, such as native flowers, plants and wildlife, wetlands, limestone caves and sinkholes and provide many opportunities for recreation access. 

More than 50 Native Forest Reserves are found scattered among pine plantation throughout the region and are managed for conservation with special protection.  Several key visitor sites facilitate accesto picturesque sites via trails, with activities including bushwalking, bird watching and low impact cycling welcome. 

All areas are open to the public during daylight hours. However, in the interest of environmental protection, tracks are closed to vehicles and motorbikes, horses are not permitted, and pet access is restricted in Native Forest Reserves.

Our Green Triangle Forests are also home to the famous after dark experience Ghost Mushroom Lane, visited by 20,000 annually.
