Affected Site/s: Warren National Park

Warren National Park has 3000 hectares of untouched woodland perfect for bushwalking, camping and relaxing. The stars of the park are some of the State’s most majestic karri trees.

Did you know that karri trees only grow in the southwest of Western Australia? These impressive giants can grow up to 90m high. Some of them are more than 200 years old.

If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, then climb to the top of the Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree. It used to be a fire lookout and is not for the faint-hearted!

Launch your canoe or kayak and take a peaceful paddle on the Warren River. You can even try your luck at fishing! River banksias, peppermints and Warren River cedar line the riverbanks. Red coral vine and white clematis add colour as they weave over tree trunks and fallen logs.

There are many walk trails to explore the forest. If walking isn’t for you, you can drive the Heartbreak Trail or the Karri Forest Explorer.

Why not stay a while and camp under the karri canopy at Warren or Draftys campgrounds?

Whether you walk in the woods, camp under karri, or take on the Bicentennial Tree, Warren National Park has lots to offer all year round.
