Discover what's in your own backyard! The always popular Nocturnal Woylie Walks return this spring. Come and experience Whiteman Park after dark by joining an interactive evening tour of Woodland Reserve.

Woodland Reserve is a protected habitat for rare and endangered WA fauna within Whiteman Park. It is located just 20 minutes from the Perth CBD and thanks to the Tonkin Highway Extension, it is now even closer than you think!

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. Special night lighting enables visitors to see woylies and quenda feeding close to their feet!

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

Get your family together and support this great local tourist attraction! Bookings are essential for these popular tours. Funds from tour fees go towards the upkeep of the Reserve and its inhabitants.
