These 1800-hectare national parklands are set in the Avon Valley. The Swan River becomes a thrashing white-water stream as it runs through the park, making it a favored location for canoeing and rafting. The park's walking trails are shaded by Wundoo, Jarrah and Flooded Gum trees, and kangaroos and bird life flourish. Wildflowers are spectacular in spring and in winter the rugged scenery is captivating. The park provides numerous picnic and barbecue areas.

My hubby & I went here hiking here Easter Sunday. We decided to hike two of the trials, Kangaroo Trial and Kingfisher Trial. This is a natural national park, and that is what you see, bush, dirt, river, insects and occasionally a bird {certainly hear them} evidence of animals, but we didn't see any this time. We enjoyed both walks,... More

Average park with a sick vegetation and a contaminated river that runs through it. There are many other worthwhile parks rather than this one.

Perfect for a hike in winter time. Different tracks from 2km up to 11km, with great lookouts, plenty of wild flowers and Roos. Bbq facilities and toilets at the river. Typical national park entry fees apply.

A very good place for picnic, BBQ with friends or family. Toilets are well kept and lots of parking facilities, picnic benches and BBQ works well. There's a fee of $12 per vehicle. Love the sort of natural pool, river and going for a walk is so blissful with the sound of rushing water. I thinks overseas tourists may somewhat... More

I'm a sucker for National Parks, wherever they are. As long as the tracks aren't too treacherous and don't require too many tools then I'm a sucker for going. This park carries the usual $12 entry per car fee (free if you cycle or walk) and features a car park and clean toilets. We went on the 11km walk which... More
