Dryandra Woodland

Dryandra Woodland is located approximately 25kms north of Williams. This 22,000 hectare forest is well known for its bird and animal life including woylies, numbats, wallabies, kangaroos and possums and for its varied plants and trees. In spring the forest abounds in wild flowers. Accommodation is available.

This woodland features the largest remnant of native vegetation in the western Wheatbelt. It's a valuable and diverse conservation area. Well-signed walking trails guide you through magnificent open eucalypt woodland. The tall white-barked wandoo and paperbark trees are impressive. 

If walking isn’t an option, the 23km self-drive Darwinia Drive Trail takes you into the heart of the woodland. Pull-over at each of the five bays to learn about the area. 

Dryandra woodland is the place to see nocturnal native wildlife. The local star is the numbat – easily recognised by its stripes You might even see woylies, tammar wallabies, echidnas, brushtail possums, tawny frogmouths and kangaroos.

It includes an optional visit to the Tarwonga School Site and Inn, and provides a pleasant half-days outing with opportunities for picnicking.

Lions Park

The recently refurbished Williams Lions Park is nestled on the banks of the Williams River alongside the Albany Hwy and Williams Sports and Recreation area. The park has toilets, bbq and picnic tables, benches, a nature play area, a long flying fox, large numbat sculpture and parking. A popular and pleasant place to take a break and let the kids burn off some energy, the nature play area includes monkey bars, stepping logs and rocks, a nest swing, slide, tunnel, climbing frame and a rope bridge. The timber and rocks are locally sourced and there are a couple of information boards in the park on local flora and fauna.

There are benches around the park if you need a seat but it was good to stretch my legs before getting back in the car for the 2 hour drive home. The layout of the park made the most of the space along the river bank with a nice display of flora throughout.

Branching off from the park is a riverside walkway which also serves as a dog exercise area. Please use this to ensure your dogs don't mess in the BBQ area and use the bags and bins provided to keep the walkway pleasant for all users.

During Long Weekend, you will find the Driver Reviver van at the Lions Park, this service provides free coffee for drivers. With the popularity of the Lions Park, the Road Safety Commission assisted the Shire of Williams to extend the carpark, creating additional sealed areas for buses, caravans and trailers to park safely. In May 2023, the Williams Lions Park joined the WA EV Network, you will find the EV chargers in the carpark.


For a relaxing walk or cycle, the cycleway begins at the Shell Roadhouse and runs along the river.

Williams Nature Reserve

The Williams Nature Reserve is located approximately 6km north west of the Williams townsite, turn off Albany Highway onto McKenzie Road and travel approx 2 km on a gravel road. 

It is set aside for the conservation of flora and fauna and has long been visited by locals and wildflower enthusiasts. A perfect location to see many wildflowers and bird watching. Following development of the site it now provides visitors with suitable access and day-use facilities such as parking, information, a lookout and picnic table. 

Future Development is currently being investigated for a walk trail from the Lions Park up to the McKenzie Road lookout.
