Western Australia's parks offer great opportunities for both exciting adventure activities and more relaxed nature-based activities.

Opportunities range from easy hikes and sheltered flat-water kayak paddles to hard-core rock climbs and black diamond mountain bike trails; close-to-home day trips to once-in-a-lifetime wilderness expeditions.

If you are new to an activity and want to build your skills and knowledge, don't have access to the right equipment or just want to find others to enjoy the activity with, we suggest you take note of the advice in these pages, find a club, contact the peak association for the activity or join a commercial tour.

Whatever your activity and level, there is always some risk - you'll be in a natural and often remote environment. We advise you take part in any adventure activity in a group of at least three people - if one person is injured, another person may need to stay with them while the third goes for help. Make sure you're familiar with all the essential visitor information included in the Safety section as well as the details specific to the place you're visiting.
