About:

 

The 498 hectare Bungendore Park bushland reserve is home to a wide variety of plants and animals.

In fact its location on the western edge of the Darling Scarp means the park displays a wide range of soils, topography and vegetation types, producing well over 300 different plant species. Most of the park is open Jarrah-Marri forest with a typical suite of understorey shrubs and orchids. The park also features many blossoms – a fact which helped it to earn its name, which means ‘place of the gum blossom’ and ‘top of a hill’ in Aboriginal language.

Bungendore Park is situated on the edge of the Darling Scarp, with sweeping views to the Swan Coastal Plain. It is located three kilometres south-east of Armadale and can be accessed from Admiral Road. Walkers can set out on marked trails located throughout the reserve.

Location:

Main entrance is on Admiral Road Bedfordale

Best Times:

In parts, the park provides a dramatic landscape of high scenic quality. Bushwalking opportunities are provided in the park, outside of areas designated for conservation. Named walk tracks are marked in the park with tree tags. Leaflets are available from the City of Armadale illustrating these walk tracks.  The park also has good lookout places.
