About this place
From here you will be able to see the effects of Phytophthora dieback on the vegetation that blankets the slopes of Mondurup Peak. Phytophthora dieback is a plant disease caused by a microscopic water mould that dwells in the soil. This disease spreads across the landscape destroying the park’s rich and varied plant life and in the process, destroying wildlife habitat too.
You can help prevent the spread of this devastating disease by cleaning mud and soil from your footwear and vehicle tyres before entering and on leaving national parks and natural areas in WA’s south-west.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
