MAKE A BOOKING

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.

Nocturnal Escapade Weekend Dryandra WA

What a great weekend - such a lovely friendly group of ladies. And Jazzy our guide was wonderful as usual. But what did I like the most? It was that I learnt stuff. I had never heard of Dryandra before, I hadn’t heard of half the animals we saw, and I saw a Bilby for the first time ever (I just thought they were an Easter chocolate).

Lastly the food was fantastic, as it always is. Thanks everyone.

Oh and I loved the cute cottages we stayed in. Wooden floor boards are just the best.
