There are a few walks here, the views are lovely, there is wildlife and beautiful wild flowers. The numbat trail is very hilly so I'd recommend a good fitness level. Call ahead on a weekday to get a code to get in.

A well marked trail that is easy to walk. There are a few small hills but nothing too strenuous. Take water and carry some food so you can sit and enjoy soeof the great views

This sanctuary is off the beaten track, although it could be linked with a visit to beautiful Toodyay about 40km down the road. Is it worth the journey? I think this could depend on the time of the year of your visit. We were there...More

A beautiful and serene sanctuary an hour from Perth. There are three trails to choose from and we walked the Quenda trail which was 6.5kms. A rewarding challenge the trail is circular and hilly, climbing up to 250m. Beautiful wildflowers were out and not one...More

Make sure you book an appointment on the paruna site before travelling here as you need an access code to enter the gate. Really great place to visit,saw lots of birds and wild kangaroos.
