Dryandra arboretum was established between 1956 and 1960 by the Forests Department to demonstrate the suitability of tree species for revegetating farmland. Ninety-six different kinds of trees were planted, predominantly eucalypts, along with an assortment of melaleucas, acacias (wattles) and sheoaks. This living gallery features a wonderful variety of colours, textures, shapes and forms. It’s a great place to stop for a picnic or take a leisurely stroll amongst the trees and enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest.
Birdwatching is a favourite activity at Dryandra and this is also a good site to look for a colourful collection of birds that include scarlet robin, red-capped robin, western yellow robin and painted buttonquail. The elusive numbat, a threatened species and Western Australia’s State mammal emblem, has also been seen here.
