About this park
Helena National Park is nestled in the Perth Hills. The park has lots of ridges and valleys with beautiful jarrah/marri forest and wandoo woodland. It’s a wonderful area for bushwalking, with the famous Bibbulmun Track passing through.
Don’t miss the park’s major attraction accessible by road. Mount Dale offers panoramic views of the Darling Ranges, Darkin River Valley and areas of state forest. This is the highest point on the Darling Scarp, and provides an ideal drop-off/pick-up point for a walk along a section of the Bibbulmun Track.
Caring for Helena National Park
Much of Helena National Park is at risk from Phytophthora dieback, a plant disease caused by the pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi which kills susceptible plants by attacking their root systems. Dieback is spread through the movement of soil and mud, especially by vehicles and to a lesser extent by footwear. Please respect DRA (Disease Risk Area) road signage, and make use of the boot cleaning stations when bushwalking.
Vehicles including dirt bikes are prohibited on many roads in the dieback Disease Risk Areas and also the water catchment areas within and adjacent to the national park.
Plan when to visit. Read this safety information about bushwalking. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
