Avon Valley National Park


The roads within the park are all unsealed.  There are some picnic facilities and basic camping sites. The best time to visit is during the cooler months.


No camp fires are allowed during the gazetted fire season. The camping grounds have wood bbq's, picnic tables and pit toilets. Water is available at Bald Hill, Drummonds Homestead, Valley Camp and the Cec Barrow camping areas. A self-registration station is established at the park entry on Quarry Road at the junction of Morongup Road. Visitors are required to pay a single park entry fee and camping fees for the number of days they wish to camp.

For more information on camping please visit the DPAW website.

Walk Trails

If you intend to walk off the marked tracks or camp away from the camping grounds, please let the ranger know beforehand. It is suggested that you bring plenty of water. Bring binoculars and a camera for the views and wildlife. The Avon River can be run by experienced canoeists and is made famous by the Avon Descent each August. In summer the river slows to a trickle, becoming a series of shallow pools.  These pools are unsuitable for swimming.
