Whether you're looking for somewhere to escape to for a week, or somewhere new to visit for the day, Western Australia's parks and reserves, with their unique jarrah, karri, wandoo and tuart forests, offer a host of options.

  • Forests are important for the conservation of many species, for example threatened mammals in the Upper Warren region and Dryandra Woodland.
  • In the forests there are places to camp, walk and picnic.
  • There are long rivers to canoe, small creeks to explore, dams to fish and the ghosts of old mill towns to investigate.
  • Walk the Bibbulmun Track through the south-west forests all the way from Kalamunda to Albany—one of the world's greatest long distance walk trails—if you have seven weeks to spare.
  • Mountain bike the long distance Munda Biddi Trail between Perth and Albany, traversing our beautiful forest areas.
