Nature and Wildlife

There are many beautiful nature and national parks to visit within a very easy drive of the city centre.

The Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) has set up many initiatives to make parks more accessible to locals and visitors alike with the Nearer to Nature program an excellent example. All Visitor Centres have information and maps relating to the many national and other parks available to visit, along with information on the best places to find wildflowers when in season.

For a full list of parks in the Experience Perth region and information on activities in the parks please visit the Department of Parks and Wildlife website.
