We will meet at the Admiral Road car park, this is 1km on the left from Albany Highway turn off at the entrance to Bungendore Park.
Generally considered a moderately challenging route but many who walk it at our pace find it relatively easy, it takes an average of 2 hrs to complete without breaks. We will take 3 to 4 hours. This is a very popular area for hiking, running, and walking, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash. There are a number of plants flowering at the moment so there will be plenty of colour.
The 498ha Bungendore Park Bushland Reserve is home to a wide variety of plants and animals. It’s part of the Wungong Regional Park. 
In fact, its location on the western edge of the Darling Scarp means the park displays a wide range of soils, topography and vegetation types, producing well over 300 different plant species. Most of the park is open Jarrah-Marri forest with a typical suite of understorey shrubs and orchids. The park also features many blossoms – a fact which helped it to earn its name, which means ‘place of the gum blossom’ and ‘top of a hill’ in local Aboriginal language. Bungendore Park is situated on the edge of the Darling Scarp, with sweeping views to the Swan Coastal Plain. It’s located three kilometres south-east of Armadale and can be accessed from Admiral Road. Walkers can set out on marked trails located throughout the reserve.
