About us

The Friends of Jirdarup Bushland is a community group dedicated to the protection, preservation and promotion of the Jirdarup Bushland Precinct in the Town of Victoria Park.

Friends of Jirdarup Bushland

Our group formed in 1999 as the Friends of Kensington Bushland and rebranded in 2020. Our logo features a Forest Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo in flight above a graphic designed by local Aboriginal artist Darryl Belotti. The rings symbolise a meeting place and the three parallel lines a journey and paths.

Our regular activities advertised through our News and Events are complemented by several key projects.

Our mission is the preservation of Jirdarup Bushland Precinct (Kensington Bushland, George St Reserve and Kent St Sandpit) in the Town of Victoria Park (Western Australia) and the promotion of its importance in the community.

How we do this

  • Advocate for the preservation and protection of Jirdarup Bushland Precinct and other Banksia woodland areas in the Town of Victoria Park (ToVP). Read more.
  • Landcare: Ensure the ‘Bush Forever’ site of the Precinct is maintained and preserved and work towards ecological restoration and protection of flora and fauna in adjacent areas. Our hand-weeding project is our major activity.
  • Promote: Increase community awareness of the value of Jirdarup Bushland Precinct, including its Indigenous heritage. Check out our activities.
