The town of Narrogin is a great base for exploring the nearby Dryandra Woodland and the many attractions of the Western Australian Wheatbelt. Just over two hours’ drive from Perth, this modern commercial centre has a good selection of cafes, accommodation, farm stays, heritage buildings, art galleries and walking trails.
Dryandra Woodland is home to over 100 bird species, 24 mammal species and many varieties of wildflowers, all just a 22 kilometre drive from the town of Narrogin. It’s an excellent opportunity to view some of Western Australia's native animals in their natural habitat, including possums, echidnas, woylies and kangaroos.
Take a nocturnal guided tour at Barna Mia Animal Sanctuary for the chance to see endangered Western Australian animals, bilbies, wallabies, western barred bandicoots and woylies. Self-contained cottages or camping sites are also available. Bookings are essential. Contact the Dryandra Country Visitor Centre or the Department of Environment and Conservation for more details about Barna Mia and Dryandra Woodland.
