Spring Into Parks: Explore 101 National Parks & 17 Marine Parks in WA

It’s like a month-long bingo with parks around WA.

Springtime in Perth is definitely something to behold, tourists come from all over the world to experience Perth in its prime, however, it seems us locals sometimes take our amazing state for granted.

Sure our beaches receive countless national awards and are known the world over, but it’s also our national parks that are the unsung heroes of the Perth spring. It’s where our wildflowers blossom, rivers thrive, and many of our native animals come out to play.

To showcase our stunning national parks and marine parks, this September, the WA Parks Foundation is celebrating spring with 30 days of nature and adventure.

Spring Into Parks

As part of the Spring into Parks campaign, a 30 Day Challenge has been put forth encouraging people of all ages to discover the beauty and wonder of WA’s spectacular natural areas and enjoy the health benefits that come from spending time in nature.

What parks should you visit?

A great way to kick start the challenge and explore WA parks, your way, is with the unique Spring into Parks calendar of events.

The calendar shows a variety of nature-based activities and entertainment happening in parks across the state this September, so you’re sure to find an event that you and your family will enjoy.

Why not take a ‘Morning Song’ bird tour in John Forrest National Park? Walk with iNSiGHT Orthonologist and WA Parks Foundation Ambassador Simon Cherriman as you explore a 2km scenic bush trail, looking out for wedge-tailed eagles and a variety of other native wildlife.

Or, if you’re looking for something to keep the little ones entertained, and at the same time immersed in nature, you can’t go past Cubby Town at Yanchep National Park. Returning in 2019, as Nature Play WA’s biggest event, Cubby Town, celebrates family time outdoors through a range of nature play activities and construction of more than 1,000 cubbies.

With 101 national parks and 17 marine parks in WA, plus a comprehensive calendar of events planned throughout September you can bet there’s a fun activity happening near you.
