Barna Mia is an animal sanctuary with a difference. Nestled in the heart of Dryandra Woodland, south-east of Perth, Barna Mia is a place to discover threatened native marsupials in a natural setting and experience the wonders of the woodland. Once the sun has set the action begins.

A tour guide takes visitors on a delightful journey through the sanctuary. With the guides special torches, you can see threatened native animals such as bilby, woylie, mala, quenda and boodie.

Many of Western Australia's native mammals have been eradicated from their former habitats because of predation by cats and foxes, cleared vegetation and changed fire regimes. Preservation of Dryandra's 28,000 hectares of bushland enabled several native species to survive.

Tours operate several times per week beginning after sunset. Actual start times vary seasonally. Please visit the website for more information.
