Our book about Jirdarup


Contributing to local knowledge

Have you ever wondered how this precious bushland survived in the middle of suburbia? With the support of the Town of Victoria Park, our first publication tells this story accompanied by some of the best shots by our generous photographers.

We will continue to publish information for people who want to know more about Jirdarup.

Research & Citizen Science

The knowledge base

From studies of the Swan Coastal Plain, to surveys undertaken specifically in Jirdarup, to simple messages about new discoveries, our knowledge base continues to expand. It is through the informal channels that we know purple enamel orchids and quenda have been seen in our bushland.

Please help us continue to add to our knowledge base.
