You can see some of Western Australia’s unique animals at Dryandra Woodland, less than 2 hours drive from Perth.
This area is home to more than 100 species of birds and 24 mammals making it perfect for animal watching.
Walk through the woodland and watch for Echidnas, Woylies, Possums, Kangaroos and the elusive Numbat.
Learn about the animals on a 25 kilometre radio gravel drive trail, the Sounds of Dryandra, which travels through open woodland scenery. The trail includes six stops that transmit interesting stories about the history and animals of the area. Or, bushwalking on one of the many tracks to see wildflowers, birds and natural bushland.
Barna Mia, an endangered animal sanctuary is nestled in the heart of Dryandra Woodland and definitely worth a stop.
