This local activity is a hidden jewel of the WA native wildlife resorts. Situated in the Sawyers Valley area, near Lake Leschenaultia, this peaceful and serene wildlife park welcomes visitors of any age to their famous "night walk" with torches.
There are a range of walks to choose from depending on your ability to walk, enthusiasm and general curiosity. The duration is approximately 1 – 1.5 hours. Your group will be allocated a tour guide, a well-spoken and profoundly knowledgeable enthusiast who will guide your group through the night bush where you would be able to spot a fair few bush animals and special plants and trees, with some interesting biography and appearance.
It is well suited for large groups as well as small. At the completion of the tour, our group was treated to a nice homemade hot cuppa soup at the wooden, camp style, visitors centre (although this may not be a part of the standard offer, please check at the visitors centre prior to booking).
It is run by community enthusiasts, who are passionate about their little sanctuary and its inhabitants. Please visit their website for more information, including programs and contact details.
