Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary, an Australian Wildlife Conservancy property is 1 hour north east of Perth in the Avon Valley on Clenton Road, Gidgegannup and offers a number of spectacular walking trails through Jarrah, Wandoo and Powderbark forest combined with heath and wetland habitat.

Please park in the car park adjacent to a locked gate which leads to the trails.  The locked gate can only be accessed with a code which your guide will have on the day.

We will allow 15 minutes grace time for anyone who may be running late before starting and relocking the gate so please plan your journey.

Backyard Blitz Series - Bush to Beach North Beach WA

Sun 30th August 2020 | Marg M

It was great to explore the Star Swamp area, I did not know if even existed and there is so much history in such a small reserve. absolutely loved the slow pace which allowed us to stop and take photos and chat whilst we wandered along the paths without slowing the group down. The lookout was another fantastic secret with sweeping views of the coast. This one gets a big tick from me!

Another wonderful day our walking with AW. It was a lovely leisurely walk. Our host Jazzy is organised and comes comes with heaps of information, that she readily shares with us all. And she continued to look after us all when we lunched afterwards, making sure we all enjoyed ourselves.
