Overview
More
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.

Not as well known as some other national park places in the area, but well worth a picnic stop. Good tables/benches, quiet and pretty.

I'm surprised that this beautiful national park has been hidden from our tourism itinerary. All my friends residing in WA have never been there and when I took them there, they got so, so excited and regret that they have not discovered this place sooner....More

There is a well established picnic spot, under the shade of the eucalyptus trees, overlooking a rocky pool of the Avon River. If you've been wandering through the Swan Valley collecting delectable fare, or if you are a local looking for a great picnic spot;...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.

No you can't take dogs to the park. It's illegal as far as I know.
