Environment Minister Albert Jacob said the new national park was a part of the Liberal National Government's commitment to conserving Western Australia's natural assets.
"Dryandra Woodland is the largest remaining remnant of Wheatbelt woodland that provides a sanctuary for 10 threatened species, including one of the few remaining wild populations of woylies, numbats and tammar wallabies," Mr Jacob said.
"We are already working to protect the woodland's natural values, with a 1,000-hectare feral predator-proof enclosure due to be completed by the end of the year. This will safeguard threatened species, alongside cat and fox baiting under the Department of Parks and Wildlife's flagship Western Shield wildlife recovery program."
One of Western Australia's most important areas for wildlife conservation, Dryandra Woodland, is set to become the Wheatbelt's first national park to ensure it remains a safe haven for wildlife and a major nature-based tourism destination.
