Woodland Reserve is Whiteman Park’s premier conservation program that is providing a world class breeding facility for rare and endangered fauna of the state.

It encompasses over 200 hectares of natural and rehabilitated woodlands and is one of the few refuges of the critically endangered woylie. You are invited to explore some of this native bushland on our guided Friday night ‘Nocturnal Woylie Walk’ tours.

Within the specially designed, electrified predator-proof facility, the critically endangered woylie (Bettongia penicillata), quenda (Isoodon obesulus) and short-beaked echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus) reside, along with numerous species of lizards, owls, micro bats, snakes, falcons, skinks, eagles, hawks, honeyeaters, ducks, insects and more.

Woodland Reserve is only accessible on a guided tour, so secure your place on our next Nocturnal Woylie Walk. Visitors to the Reserve will get a chance to see some of these native animals, as well as encountering the heathlands, melaleuca damplands and banksia woodlands of the Reserve – all of which are important habitats for the fauna of the Swan Coastal Plain.
