Stay overnight in one of the old mill cottages at the heritage listed Lions Dryandra Woodland Village. 

This is just one of many great walks and trails for you to enjoy by foot, bicycle or in the comfort of your car. The trails vary in length from one to more than 25 kilometres and one of the drive trails features audio stories of the area through FM radio at six different stops. The Ochre Trail, highlights the Aboriginal heritage of the Dryandra area including an ochre pit.

Just loved Dryandra Woodland. Wildflowers along the Woylie Walk are spectacular in spring. Well maintained track with great directional signage. Campgrounds and other visitor facilities are awesome too as was the Barna Mia night walk. This unique area is more than worthy of National Park status.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
