100 Acre Wood

The 100 Acre Wood is a circuit of walk trails immediately north of the Myalup townsite, adjacent to the Yalgorup National Park.

The Myalup Walk Trails (which are marked by poles and pegs) will take you through a wide range of vegetation types from dunes to Tuart forest and provide a wonderful panoramic view of the southern portion of Lake Preston and the Darling Range, plus views of the Indian Ocean.

The 100 Acre Wood is home to the rare Graceful Sun Moth (Synemon gratiosa). The moth is specially protected fauna under the WA Wildlife Conservation Act and only appears for a few weeks each year – usually late February to March.

The car park for the trail is located next to the Yalgorup National Park information bay on Reading/Lake Preston Road.

Since the wood is inhabited by a range of small animals such as bandicoots, please keep your dogs under control if you take them walking.
