Tour Overview

This advanced 12.5 km hiking tour will take you through the magnificence of Paruna sanctuary.  The sanctuary is in the Darling Range, and sits on the western margin of the ‘Yilgarn Block’, an ancient granite landform that formed over 2.5 billion years ago. The scenic Avon Valley, where Paruna is located, was carved out by the Avon River over thousands of years. The sanctuary itself is characterised by extremely steep slopes, numerous streams and creeklines, and areas of exposed granite. The 2,000 hectare property predominantly follows the southern banks of the Avon River. The Numbat trail makes its way through King Jarrah and Marri forrest, over to the Paruna gorge, and along the steep slopes, so expect lots of stairs.  This hike is not for the faint hearted! This detailed and well maintained trail will surely provide all hikers with a spectacular and challenging hiking experience.
