In the midst of South Australia’s Kuitpo Forest, lies a secret enchanted tree surrounded by beautiful tall pines on a private property. The owners of the property are very kind and used to people visiting often. I know it doesn’t sound overly appealing to be just “a tree.” but its not any old tree….
It’s like the black sheep of the pines. When your standing right in front of it, its almost as though Maleficent might tap you on the shoulder and ask what your doing in her woods! I first heard about this magical tree through my sister and she told me how beautiful it was. I knew I had to get down there! I then saw it again on a friend’s Instagram and thought, GOD I NEED TO GO THERE ALREADY!
I found a random blog with what I thought would be the right directions to the tree which was apparently ‘just left of the woodcutters cottage’. But once we got to that area all we saw were pines… lots and lots of pines. Knowing I made a mistake by not finding out the exact directions and destination of the tree, I just kind of silently wandered behind Jackie trying not to give up on finding it!
After about 30 minutes in the middle of the forest we came across two lovely ladies on their horses that were happy to give us directions to ‘The Tree’. ‘5 minutes up the road and to the left’ WE MADE IT! The private property had an open day for people planning their events as it has been a popular spot for some wedding ceremonies! Honestly, it was just how I imagined… Magical.
So YES, it is totally worth the checking out! Or maybe you’re needing a wedding location?
