Welcome to Dryandra Woodland
With small breeding populations of threatened numbats, wallabies and other marsupials, this isolated 28,000-hectare remnant eucalypt forest 164km southeast of Perth hints at what the Wheat Belt was like under Wiilman Aboriginal stewardship, before large-scale land clearing and feral predators wreaked havoc on ecosystems. With numerous walking trails, it makes a great getaway from Perth. You can camp or stay overnight in the Woodland, or Narrogin is the nearest hub of any social substance, 25km to the southeast: roll into town for eats, sleeps and tourist info.
