paruna walk trail

Paruna sanctuary is located in the Avon Valley approximately an hour east of Perth near the small town of Gidgegannup. Established in 1998 after eight separate blocks were purchased and amalgamated, the pristine bushland in the 2,000 ha sanctuary includes jarrah, wandoo & powderbark forest combined with heathland & riparian habitat. The sanctuary forms a vital corridor along the Avon River between the Walyunga & Avon Valley National Parks.


There are a number of high quality walk trails at Paruna sanctuary that were constructed with the assistance of “Green Corps” teams. The trails vary in length and difficulty from the 2.5 km Possum Loop to the 13 km Numbat Track. You can walk these trails for a small fee. For more information and bookings visit the Paruna Sanctuary website.

No dogs are allowed either on or off the leash. is an initiative of gidgegannup community groups
