Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary
Directions - From Toodyay Rd make a left turn at O'Brien Rd. After 17kms you will reach the left turn at Avon Rd (2.3km past the Ewing Rd turnoff). Make your way on the gravel track that is now signposted and soon you will be at the parking area in front of the main gate.
The Hike - With spring approaching I thought I would head out and hike one of the lesser known trails in the Perth Hills, the Numbat Trail in the Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary. Entry to the Numbat Trail requires you to book online via the Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary website before you plan on hiking the trail as the entry gate is computer coded for protection. An entry fee of $10 per hiker also applies but this is a small price to pay for what is a very well maintained and enjoyable trail. You will also be helping the sanctuary keep up their great conservation work in the area.
