The Bushland
Jirdarup Bushland Precinct, with 'Bush Forever' site Kensington Bushland at its heart, is a rare slice of remnant banksia-jarrah woodlands tucked away in Victoria Park. A hidden natural treasure and biodiversity hot spot, Jirdarup means ‘Place of Birds’ in the Nyoongar language. It is home to 62 species of birds, as well as 14 species of reptiles and over 200 plant species. Get creative and immerse yourself in photographing the wealth of Jirdarup's flora, fauna, and landscapes.

The Bushland entry points are from Etwell Street, George Street and Baron Hay Court. There is free parking, wide pathways, and dog walking is permitted. Disabled access is via Baron-Hay Court entrance. You can take photos from the public access areas in Jirdarup Bushland, but please don’t jump the fences.

MORE RAINBOW BEE-EATER NEWS!
Congratulations to Steve Nicholls for this fabulous photograph of a Rainbow Bee-Eater at Lake Gwelup here in Perth. It’s now a finalist in a major international photographic competition. Good luck Steve! https://photocontest.smithsonianmag.com/pho.../archive/2021/

Rainbow Bee-Eaters have also been active in Jirdarup Bushland Precinct this summer showing off their hunting skills. These beautiful birds return annually to breed and raise their young. As well as nesting in Kensington Bushland, we now know they use the Kent Street Sandpit too!! A recent survey commissioned by the Town of Victoria Park was able to locate several active RBE burrows in the area. So when the Sandpit restoration work finally starts, these RBE nesting sites will be carefully protected.
