The Friends of Jirdarup Bushland

The Friends of Jirdarup Bushland is a community group based around Victoria Park. We are dedicated to the preservation of Jirdarup Bushland Precinct which includes Kensington Bushland, George St Reserve and Kent St Sandpit. We organize community events as well as planting and weeding days each year.

Our aim is to help the community connect with nature through protecting, regenerating and revegetating the Jirdarup Bushland Precinct.

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.
