Helms Arboretum is located north of Esperance on the road to Gibson.
The arboretum is named after a respected forester called Andy Helms.
The plots of trees date back to 1928, when plantings of different types of trees were made to determine their usefulness in
the Esperance area.
There is a picnic area at the western end of the Arboretum where you will find a toilet and seats, tables and shelter.
The arboretum is just part of a much larger forestry reserve that covers 4000 ha.
