Guided Walks Schedule

There are a series of guided nature walks at Landsdale, Koondoola, Lake Gwelup and Star Swamp reserves. Guided walks in Trigg Bushland are held only when there is a fifth Saturday in the month, making them quite special. Upcoming dates are as follows:

  • 31 December 2022
  • 29 April 2023
  • 29 July 2023

The walks commence at 8:00 am from the carpark on the south side of St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School, just off Elliott Road.  See the map below and look for the banner! Parking is free but sometimes it can be crowded.

Walks usually last two hours, or more, but, of course, you can leave at any time.  The walk is at a gentle pace on established paths. Bring your hat and water bottle as well as your camera and binoculars. Covered shoes and long pants are recommended.

Children are welcome.  It is a good learning opportunity for all.

Text Mitch on 0488 561 583, or e-mail triggbushland@gmail.com, if you have any questions.

Sunday, 25 September 2022: Wildflower Fiesta

The Friends of Trigg Bushland have partnered with the Friends of Star Swamp and the Urban Bushland Council to host a Wildflower fiesta this spring! Please join us for this family friendly event at the Henderson Education Centre, located in Star Swamp bushland. We look forward to seeing you there.

The Friends of Trigg Bushland monitor groundwater levels monthly at six sites in the bushland.

The location of the sites is shown below.  The table shows the results from September this year and compares it to the previous month and the same time last year. The figures show the distance from ground level to the watertable.

Of course, monitoring data becomes more meaningful when examined over a much longer period of time.

If you are interested in learning how to measure the watertable levels in Trigg Bushland, please text Mitch on 0488 561 583 or e-mail triggbushland@gmail.com

No experience is necessary and transport can be provided.

Sunday, 25 July 2021: Friends of Trigg Bushland and Friends of Star Swamp Bushland Annual General Meeting, 1.45 – 4.30 pm, Henderson Environment Centre, Groat Street, North Beach.

We were delighted to have author and historian Chris Holyday as our AGM Guest Speaker.  Chris published ‘Between Beach and Bush:  Remember old North Beach, Trigg and Watermans Bay’ in September last year.  The book covers over 100 years of history, from the First Nations’ camps at Star Swamp, homes built by early pioneers, local shipwrecks and convicts, early transport, and many other interesting events and people that shaped our suburbs.
