Guangxi Liuwan Mountain Forest Park is affiliated to the Guangxi state-owned Liuwan Forest Farm. Located at the junction of Fumian district, Xingye county, and Bobai county of Yulin, as well as Pubei county of Qinzhou, the scenic spot boasts a subtropical monsoon climate, with more than 9,000 negative oxygen ions per cubic meter. It has superior advantages in location, transportation, and ecotourism resources.
With a total planned area of 6,620 mu (441.33 hectares), the park is mainly comprised of ecological forests with planted tree species like star anise, Chinese fir, Chinese red pine, and Chinese cedar. Woodlands in the park are one of the most suitable areas for planting star anise in Guangxi. The star anise produced here is well-known for its fruity, fragrant, and strong flavor.

The park has a unique natural environment and rich forest tourism resources. It has a variable terrain, high in the southwest and low in the northeast. Its highest peak is 1,113.8 meters above sea level. It also has abundant high-quality drinking water resources.
The park consists of one sightseeing belt and four areas with different functions, spanning leisure, recreation, experience, and adventure. It integrates forest, culture, and tourism resources, focusing on the construction of nine major project highlights. It aims to build itself into an international first-class mountain bike racing area, a national eco-tourism demonstration area, and a high-end summer resort in South China.
The park was approved to be built into an autonomous region-level forest park in July 2013, and was identified as a 4A-level rural tourist scenic spot and a county-level modern agricultural demonstration zone in December 2016.
