W Tree is the home of two ecovillages – Mt Murrindal co-op and Sunrise Farm, one Tibetan Buddhist center , a number of different ecosensitive businesses and very creative & entreprenurial people .
It is surrounded by forest, both rainforest areas and State Forest. Rainforest in the area includes such species as Muttonwood, Lilly Pilly, Sassafras and Sweet Pittosporum. The Snowy River National Park and the Alpine National Park are both within an hours drive, the world famous Buchan Caves are 20 minutes away. The Snowy River is popular with both tourists and locals, and rafting and whitewater trips are a fantastic way to see the magnificent gorges.
In 2009 they hosted a spirit of place festival (details here).
