Shannon National Park is set in some of the most magnificent karri country in Western Australias southern forest. The park covers the entire basin of the Shannon River, from its headwaters to the Southern Ocean. The park covers 53,500 hectares, including old growth and regrowth karri forests and biologically-rich heathlands and wetlands.

You can meander along the Great Forest Trees Drive or get up close to the forest on several different walktrails from the Shannon day use area. There is a campground with barbeques, toilets and showers and two small camping huts.
