Para Wirra Conservation Park

The Quarry Track is temporarily closed due to a track upgrade and will re-open on 30 June 2016. Devils Nose Hike remains open.

Para Wirra Conservation Park offers a beautiful bushland setting with many recreational facilities in which to enjoy the park's wildlife.

Bushwalking along the many trails throughout the park is a popular activity where western grey kangaroos can be frequently seen at dawn and dusk. Watching emus strut through the picnic grounds is a common sight, especially around lunchtime.

This family friendly park has a sports oval that is ideal for a game of cricket on a lazy afternoon, or get motivated and try these 20 fun things to do in Para Wirra!
