The always popular Nocturnal Woylie Walks at Whiteman Park return this Spring and Summer 2019/20. Experience Whiteman Park when it is at its most active by joining an evening tour of Woodland Reserve.

Just 20 minutes from the Perth CBD, Woodland Reserve is a protected habitat for rare and endangered WA fauna within Whiteman Park. On this fantastic guided tour, you can explore unique bushland habitats of the Reserve and see its wildlife in action.

Led by one of the knowledgeable volunteer guides, you'll walk through the Reserve habitats by torchlight, see native fauna in their natural environment and learn about what Whiteman Park is doing to help the critically endangered woylie. Thanks to the special night-lighting, you'll even be able to see woylies and quenda feeding close to your feet!

The Reserve is home to many other species too, including the short-beaked echidna, bush-stone curlew and tammar wallaby.

Bookings are essential for these popular tours. The funds from your tour fees go towards the upkeep of the Reserve and its inhabitants.
