A significant body of land forming a corridor connecting Walyunga and the Avon Valley National Park. A number of walk trails available. Most trails closed during bushfire season Dec - March.
Paruna Sanctuary, in the beautiful Avon Valley east of Perth, forms an important wildlife corridor that links two regionally significant National Parks - Walyunga National Park and Avon Valley National Park – to create a combined protected area of approximately 19,500 ha. Flanked by the regionally significant Avon-Swan River, Paruna features stunning woodlands of Wandoo and Powderbark.
Fencing of the southern boundary of the sanctuary, combined with a regional feral animal control program, has allowed the successful reintroduction of two key mammal species to Paruna sanctuary and the adjacent National Parks – the nationally endangered Black-flanked Rock-wallaby and the Tammar Wallaby.
Paruna also supports a number of other threatened species, including the Chuditch (Western Quoll), as well as iconic small mammals such the Honey Possum.
