Jirdarup Bushland Precinct

Sometimes it’s easy to overdo it with all of the fabulous food and entertainment around Perth and Victoria Park.

That’s why places like the Jirdarup Bushland Precinct are so special, providing a haven for native plants, birds and jaded city-dwellers needing some quality-time with nature.

The Jirdarup Bushland Precinct includes several tranquil outdoor spaces, the highlight being a pristine 9 hectare area known as Kensington Bushland. “Jirdarup” is a local Nyoongar word meaning “place of birds” and this place doesn’t disappoint – you might spot kookaburras, rainbow bee-eaters or the endangered Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo on your adventures.

If you want to get up close and personal with some of these beautiful birds or go spotting stunning bush wildflowers with a local, check out the Friends of Kensington Bushland’s socials for details of regular guided walking tours.

There’s information signs, public art and benches dotted throughout the Jirdarup Bushland Precinct so you can linger on your walk. Dogs on leads are welcome to join the adventure on the marked walking trails.

And right next door to the Kensington Bushland is the Harold Rossiter Reserve, where you can enjoy a grassy picnic under the stunning eucalyptus trees.
