Escape, Experience and Encounter â€¦ Dryandra Woodland provides the perfect opportunity to spend quality time in nature. Join us for the most amazing weekend awayâ€¦ mingling with the mammals!
We stay at the Lions Dryandra Woodland Village in the restored woodcutters cottages amongst the Dryandra Woodlands, a world recognised biodiversity â€˜hotspotâ€™, where over 850 species of flora can be seen throughout the year. Wandoo woodlands, mallet plantations and diverse heathlands support possums, woylies, kangaroos, numbats, echidnas, bird, reptiles and insects.
On Saturday afternoon once everyone has arrived, our Adventurous Women Guide will take you for a wander along the 5.5km "Top Trackâ€™ Wyolie Walk through woodlands of Wandoo, powerbark, kwongan heathlands, jarrah and stands of rock sheoak, while looking out for woylie diggings in the area and numbats searching for underground termites. Afterwards freshen up before joining together at our Guide's Cottage for Pre-dinner/Nocturnal drinks & nibbles, prior to our very special visit to Barna Mia, an innovative ecotourism facility nestled amongst the stately marri and powderbark trees.
This experience offers the visitor a rare opportunity to observe threatened Western Australian species up close and personal in their natural habitat. We arrive just after sunset and step out into the starlit night, walking along the illuminated pathways, with the gregarious Boodies shunting their way through the bush searching for insects, fungi and seeds. We wander through Wandoo woodland and Sheoak thickets and experience the absolute wonder of the woodland on this amazing nocturnal animal viewing adventure. We may see Woylies, Boodies, Mala, Bilbyâ€™s, Quenda and Possums.
Once you've been absolutely blown away by what you'll see, it's back to the Guide's Cottage to tuck into our famous farmhouse stew and then it's relaxation time around the log fire (or if you prefer, set off to your own cottage to retire and relax in your own space ... choice is yours, it's your getaway)
The following day, after a leisurely breakfast, pack up your bags and head out on the Lol Gray Trail and up to the Lol Gray Tree Fire Lookout with our Guide. The whole trail is a 12.5 km loop trail, or you can return on the shorter 6 km loop to the village if you prefer.... plenty of choice!
