John Forrest National Park

​The John Forrest National Park was established as an A Class Reserve in 1898 and the park is home to two waterfalls that flow in winter and spring – Hovea and National Park Falls.

There are excellent recreational facilities available including barbeque and picnic areas, walk and horse trails and mountain bike tracks.

The park has 10 species of native mammal (one declared rare), and 91 species of bird (two considered to be in need of special protection), 23 species of reptile and 10 species of frog.

For those interested in wildflowers, a slow drive along the full length of Park Road will show you many of the 500 odd species of wildflowers recorded for this park.

The Park is well equipped for people in wheelchairs. There are disabled parking bays as well as accessible toilet and picnic areas

The park is managed by the Department of Parks and Wildlife and entry fees apply.
