With a total of 24 national parks, a large proportion of Australia's South West’s beautiful landscapes and natural attractions are protected, which means they’re also the best places to observe native flora and fauna.
To help preserve these unique natural environments, please stay on the walk trails and take all rubbish away with you. When you are travelling through remote areas, advise the local park ranger, check information about track closures, and always pay close attention to road and weather conditions when driving.
The national parks are all managed by the Department of Environment & Conservation (DEC) and a variety of facilities have been provided for visitors. In some areas, park passes are required to visit a national park. These can be purchased from DEC offices and some visitor centres.
Further information and advice about visiting our national parks can be found at the DEC Visitor Information website.
