Although fragmented and surrounded (in places) by farmland this forest reserve is worth a visit. The roads are dirt, but in good condition. There is a 23 km interpretive drive with stations that have interesting information about the fauna and flora of the area. At...More

I and family friends have made the Lions Dryandra Village a compulsory winter getaway for a weeks holiday for almost twenty years. It is rustic - after all the timber cottages were the homes of forestry workers in the mid 20th century - but they...More

Woodland walks available where I have spotted echidnas. This woodland is best known as the place to see wild numbats, but they have escaped me on two visits. Camping and basic accomodation available. Barna Mia is also a nice experience (reviewed seperately).

I am lucky enough to travel the world to photograph wildlife and Dryandra is STILL one of my favourite places. Take your time, spend a minimum of three nights at Dryandra Village and explore. Have respect, walk quietly and be patient! I love it here...More

Questions & Answers
Where can I find reliable and accurate driving directions and travelling duration (car) from Perth to Dryandra Nature Reserve/return - online? Or even find out in advance, if there may be roadworks planned along the route? I tried whereis, Google Maps, and travelmate map But none seem to recognise Dryandra Nature Reserve (or Perup Nature Reserve) nor have all the information. Do Parks or Nature Reserve passes need to be purchased to gain entry? Are maps of roads/trails in the reserves available anywhere? What about fuels costs (unleaded) along the way for a hire car (sedan or hatchback)? - I asssume the further away from Perth you go (more regional), the more fuel will cost. - Which hours are the service stations are open til during the week or weekend? - And are there any towns/stops on the way back to Perth to find something to eat?
