The best camping near Walyunga National Park guide

Overview

About

Located in the hills north-east of Perth, the small Walyunga National Park is easy to reach from the city and is a great destination for day tripping. There’s also a small campsite for travellers who want to stay a night or two. The Avon River runs through the park, providing a peaceful backdrop for picnics, hikes, or more active canoeing and kayaking. It’s also an important site in local Aboriginal culture and history, with one of the largest known Aboriginal campsites around Perth. The Walyunga Campground is the only campsite in the park and has five sites that are suitable for tent and swag camping. Visitors interested in learning more can hike the Aboriginal Heritage Trail, one of several hikes in the park.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. The park’s only campsite, the Walyunga Campground, should be booked in advance online at the Explore Parks WA website. 
  2. Choose your dates carefully as a cancellation fee applies, and is higher in peak season. 
  3. The camping fee must be paid by credit card when booking, but the separate vehicle fee can be paid on arrival in the national park.

When to go

Spring is an especially good time to visit Walyunga National Park because wildflowers bloom, adding colour to the landscape. The park is especially busy during school holidays and on weekends, so visit or camp here mid-week for a more peaceful experience and greater chance to snag a campsite. Note that during and after heavy rain (most common in winter), the rivers in the park can become full and run rapidly through the park. The park is open daily from 8am until 5pm.

Know before you go

  • The toilets at the Walyunga Campground are non-flush pit toilets only. 
  • Generators can be used between 8am and 9pm only. Bring your own firewood as collecting it within the park isn’t allowed.
  • Walyunga Pool and Boongarup Pool are good places to paddle a kayak or a canoe.
  • Dogs and other pets aren’t allowed in the national park.
  • Hikers have several choices within the park, from the 4-kilometre Kangaroo Trail to the 11-kilometre Echidna Trail. Consider hiking with a personal locator beacon (PLB) for extra safety.
