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. 

 

Join us as we explore the A to Z within the park….Arachnids & Australian Bluebells.  Bobtails & Black Gloved Wallabys. Cowslip Orchards & Calothamnus. Dugites & Death  Adders. Echidnas & Elegant Parrots. Fantailed Cuckoos & Frogs. Grey Kangaroos & Grasshoppers. Hovea & Huntsmans. Isopogon & Isopods.  Jug Orchids & Jarrah.  King Slinks & Kangaroo Paws. Little Wattlebirds & Laughing Kookaburras Mardo & Marri. Nuytsia Floribunda & New Holland Honey Eaters. Owlet NightJar & Boobook Owls. Painted Button Quail & Prickly Moses. Quacking Frogs & Quenda. Rufous Tree-Creeper & Red-Capped Parrot. Splendid Fairy Wren & Salmon-Bellied Skink. Tiger Snakes & Trigger Plants. Underwoodisaurus Milii’s & Urchin Dryandra. Viminaria Juncea & Verticordia. Wedge-Tailed Eagles & Western Spinebill’s. Xanthorrhoea. Yellow Rumped Thornbills & Yellow Robins. Zamia & Zoospores.

I have had exposure to a lot of the Bib maps and compasses through my husband but I have never had the opportunity to put the two together and understand how they work. Finally I have some experience and might just be able to go for a hike and find my way!
