Avon Valley National Park

National Parks and Reserves

Escape the city at Avon Valley National Park where you can go bushwalking, white-water rafting, canoeing and picnicking.

This delightful national park is less than an hour’s drive from Perth – spend an afternoon here surrounded by nature and you’ll feel recharged and relaxed.

The famous Avon River flows through the park and is home to an annual white-water rafting event, the Avon Descent. White-water rafting and canoe tours operate along the river.

There are barbecue facilities, as well as many shaded picnic-spots and riverside walks. It’s easy to find a place to yourself by the river to enjoy.

The jarrah and marri trees mingle with wandoo woodland to create a diverse habitat for plants and animals. More than 90 species of birds are found in the park making it a great place for birdwatching. In spring, the park comes to life with wildflowers including native orchids.

Campgrounds are available with access to barbecues, picnic tables and toilets.

Camping in Western Australia’s natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online for a trial period.

Tourists are advised to check for alerts and road/park closures before commencing their travel on www.emergency.wa.gov.au and https://alerts.dbca.wa.gov.au.
