Spring Walk Warwick Bushland
Updated: Feb 4, 2020
This wonderful piece of bush is an internationally recognised biodiversity hotspot with numerous unique species and habitats. The Warwick Bushland Jarrah Loop Trail is a 1.3km flat packed limestone trail to the north of Warwick High School and opposite the Warwick Stadium. Information signs have been erected along the trail detailing the flora and fauna found in the reserve.
We walked this trail early in September on a Spring Wildflower Walk organised by Friends of Warwick Bushland. The two botanists guiding the tour shared interesting information about the plants and helped us to identify them. The wildflowers were stunning - especially the many orchids this reserve is well known for. We spotted donkey and cowslip orchards, enamel orchids, fire orchids, carousel spider orchids and a jug orchid.
Warwick Bushland is bordered by Warwick, Beach, Erindale and Wanneroo Roads in Warwick with access via Lloyd Drive off either Beach Road or Warwick Road. Parking (and toilets) are available at Warwick Stadium or the nearby Warwick Bowling Club.
The Tuart Trail in the south west corner of the bushland, south of Warwick High School, is 1.7km long. The Banksia Trail is 1.5km and lies in the south eastern corner of the bushland. Dogs are permitted but should be on lead.
This piece of bush is maintained by Friends of Warwick Bushland. This volunteer organisation does a fantastic job keeping the bush weed and rubbish free.
