Para Wirra Conservation Park offers a beautiful bushland setting with many recreational facilities that can help visitors enjoy the park's wildlife.

Bushwalking along the many trails throughout the park is a popular activity where western grey kangaroos can be frequently seen at dawn and dusk. Watching emus strut through the picnic grounds is a common sight, especially around lunchtime.

This family friendly park has a sports oval that is ideal for a game of cricket on a lazy afternoon.
