Geocache Description:


This cache is located among 14 Hectares of beautiful urban bushland. There are not many of these blocks of ‘urban jungle’ left in our city, so please appreciate and enjoy.

There have been over 150 native plants identified in this bushland, including wildflowers, orchids, Christmas Trees, Sheoaks, Pricklybarks, Paperbarks, and Marris – one is enormous! One unusual plant, a native foxglove called Woolly Dragon (Pityrodia bartlingii) occurs in a small 20m X 20m area. This plant can be found in only a few other spots in the metropolitan area.

Despite the ‘No Entry’ sign, Homewest (current owner) do not mind unofficial recreational use of the block. Entrance can be made from an open gate in the south west corner behind the police station. There are also a couple of gaps in the fence on the northern boundary, which would provide a nice walk through the bushland.

The remains of an old road runs east-west, so there isn’t really a need to go ‘bush bashing’.

Have fun!

JULY 2007 UPDATE
The Department of Housing and Works have proposed a residential development for this bushland. There is very little bushland left in this area and this area provides an excellent nature and recreational retreat.
Please consider writing to the WA Planning Commission before Fri August 3rd. Info on how to make a submission can be found at www.wapc.wa.gov.au/ - Thanks.
