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’ 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.
