Experience the natural beauty and bush delights of Bungendore Park. The park covers 498 hectares and is a popular nesting and congregation area of the Red-tailed Black Cockatoo and home to a family of the black-gloved wallabies. Western Spinebills and New Holland Honeyeaters can be seen searching for nectar in Parrot Bush and Grevillea Bush. Sitting on the western edge of the Darling Scarp, most of the plateau consists of Laterite, a red residual soil formed by the leaching of silica and by the enrichment with aluminium and iron oxides. To the west, the surface has been eroded to reveal the ancient granite bedrock. Spectacular views from vantage points back towards Perth city.
