Numbat Trail Hiking Experience

Off the Beaten Track WA

Discover the Numbat Trail in the Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary with Off The Beaten Track WA!

The Numbat Trail is the longest of three trails that Paruna has to offer, and right from the start you can see why it has a good reputation. You can expect a complex mosaic of woodland, shrubland and heathland throughout steep granite slopes, boardwalks, eerie marshes and amazing views of the Paruna Gorge. As you traverse the many switchbacks and lots of steps, the fresh scent of eucalyptus is ever present.

Paruna 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 creek lines, and areas of exposed granite.

The Sanctuary is home to a number of significant species including the threatened Chuditch (Western Quoll), Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo, and small mammals such as the Honey Possum, which lives in Paruna’s diverse heathlands, and the Western Pygmy Possum.
