This park is located close to Perth along the foot of the Darling Scarp. The Avon and Brockman rivers converge to form the start of the Swan River that flows through the park.

Springtime is one of the most popular times to visit because of the number of wildflowers. At least 12 orchid species have been found in the park.

Walyunga Pool is an important heritage site for Aboriginal people as it was a major campsite and tool making area. A heritage trail leads 1200 metres (return) between Walyunga and Boogarup Pools.

Longer walks are also available in the park like the 10.6 kilometre Echidna Trail, 8.5 kilometre Kingfisher Trail and the 5.2 Kilometre Syd's Rapids and the 4 kilometre Kangaroo Trail. (All distances quoted are for return walks).

Grey kangaroos, echidna, woylies, wallabies, long necked tortoise and a large variety of bird species can all be found in the park.

The name is Aboriginal in origin and may mean 'northern tribe or group' or another suggestion is 'happy place' but this has not been confirmed.

Access to the park is via the Great Northern Highway on the eastern side of the road prior to reaching Bullsbrook.

The park is a great place to watch the Avon Descent each year as competitors come down the river in kayaks and 'bath-tub' racers.

There is a small camping area in the park but it is closed from December 1st 2017 to March 29th 2018.

The park is open between 8am and 5pm and entry fees apply. There are free gas BBQs available at the picnic grounds.
