The Quinns Rock Environmental Group are offering a curatored walk of Neerabup National Park to us as members of Urban Bushland Council. This would not only be a great walk but educational. How many of you have been to Neerabup NP? Not me! 
As our population expands so do our suburbs. The northern suburbs have had enormous growth in the last 40 years but should we still be putting main roads through our main green infrastructure? If so how do we preserve the wildlife linkages? As you know our Mosman Park major wildlife linkage connecting the ocean and the river through Buckland Hill has major transport routes (Stirling Highway, Fremantle train line and Curtin Avenue) dissecting it. 
Unlike Mosman Park, Neerabup still has many four legged native mammals and many insects. 

Let me know if you have registered so some physical distancing transport pooling can occur.

Celebrate with a Guided Walk. Visit Neerabup National Park, a connector for biodiversity in the Northern corridor but under pressure from development

Celebrate International Day for Biological Diversity

Celebrate with a Guided Walk…

Visit Neerabup National Park which is a connector for biodiversity but is under pressure from development in the Northern corridor.

Join the UBC sponsored guided walk of the Neerabup National Park lead by members of the Quinns Rocks Environmental Group (QREG) on Sunday 31 May. You will explore the Tuart and Jarrah Woodlands to Open Forests. You will also observe the fauna underpasses installed two years ago as a mitigation measure for Neerabup Road dissecting the widest section of the National Park.

We are limiting places to 10 participants per session to meet the COVID-19 safety requirements for physical distancing. If you cannot attend after making a registration, please cancel your registration.

There are 3 identical sessions. You can register for your preferred time via Eventbrite at the links below or from the UBC Events page

Session 1: 9.30-11.30am Register here

or Session 2: 10.30am-12.30pm Register here.   

or Session 3: 2.00-4.00pm Register here.  

Please meet at 10th Light Horse Heritage Trail car park in Wanneroo Road, Neerabup, just north of Neerabup Road.

We recommend that you wear closed shoes, hat, sunscreen and bring insect repellent as ticks are common.  Also bring along water and light refreshment or lunch. If you plan to have your lunch at the site, bring your camping chair too.  No dogs, thank you.

Neerabup National Park

Neerabup National Park (Bush Forever Area 383) is a wonderful example of biodiversity of this part of the Swan Coastal Plain. It stretches over 12 km from NW to SE between Yellagonga Regional Park and Yanchep National Park. And it is also the only East-West ecological linkage traversing the full suite of Swan Coastal Plain vegetation complexes in the North Metropolitan region. .

In addition, the Park is a place of cultural heritage. The Yaberoo Budjara Heritage Trail is based on local Whadjuk Noongar elder Yellagonga’s tribe’s movement. Europeans  later used the trail as a stock route. Then during WWI, the Park was home to the 10th Light Horse regiment.

Neerabup National Park was originally gazetted in 1965 for the purpose of ‘National Park’. The conservation significance of this area has been recognised many times. This includes its designation as Bush Forever Area 383 and EPA recommendations to add lands to the National Park boundary following its assessment of MRS Amendments 992/33 in 2000. However, the EPA recommendations are yet to be finalised. While we wait, major road projects that adversely impact the National Park continue to be approved. Considering the narrow, elongated shape of the national park, sensitive and adaptive management of this significant biodiversity asset is critical.

International Day for Biological Diversity 22 May

You can find further information about the International Day for Biological Diversity here. Its 2020 Theme is: Our solutions are in nature.  This theme emphasizes hope, solidarity and the importance of working together at all levels to build a future of life in harmony with nature.

Point Roe is a salt marsh. These types of salt marshes work day and night in so many way to keep our river healthy and us healthy!


Unfortunately Point Roe is  a degraded salt marsh and needs our continued help. We now know the importance of healthy vegetation along our waterways. You may have noticed a salt marsh areas along the Swan River has already been fenced for great benefit to the River & us.


Let’s give the Roe Point salt marsh a helping hand so it will bring back the birds and bring back the tough salt tolerant sedges. A healthier Roe Point salt marsh will contribute to restoring the health of the Swan River and keep the river fish and dolphins happy.


Did you know that most of the birds that use our beaches make their nest on the ground and they are very well disguised? For this and other reason access to salt marshes should be managed and restricted.


If you would like to read more " The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands" had their International conference in Australia in 2018 with a message for an urgent need to protect and restore our saltmarshes.

Tools, gloves and morning tea provided! Bring a water bottle! Wear protective old clothes suited to bush work and the weather! Forecast 30 degrees!

If you can help give out our brochures and attend our stand to encourage the public to become involved in caring for the bushland please let me know. Or just come along and get to know fellow bush guardians without gloves and saws in hand!

We will have:
  • seeds from local plants that are easy to grow
  • raw Mosman Park backyard honey for sale,
  • a bunch of fountain grass weed for public awareness and 
  • brochures for the May native plant subsidy scheme 

 Christchurch Grammar students putting themselves in the picture! Meticulously picking fountain grass seed heads from a heavy weed infestation at Monument Hill. The seeds last for at least 10 years in the soil! Now that is a lot of weeding!!!
