Trees are perhaps the most important component of the ecosystem within our local bushland areas, providing shelter and homes for many of the animals in the bushland.

Some birds build nests from sticks or grasses amongst the tallest branches of large eucalypts like the Marri and Tuart trees. Others make nests in the hollows of these trees, as do possums, bats, and lizards. These hollows usually take over a century to develop and grow large enough for these animals to make use of so the retention of these old trees is vital to the survival of these animal species within suburban areas.

The flowers of trees provide valuable nectar to many birds and insects, especially the large flower spikes of our banksia trees. Other animals and fungi feed on the wood itself, with some beetle and caterpillar larvae leaving behind ornately-patterned tunnels as they chew through the trunks and branches.

Trees also provide many benefits to humans, including the medicinal properties utilised by the Noongar people, the timber which the early colony was built from, and even just a shady spot in which we can relax and enjoy our surrounds.

The Friends of Bold Park Bushland volunteer guides will be sharing their knowledge of our local trees during their guided walks this November.

Prepare for your walk:

  • Wear sturdy shoes and come dressed for the weather. Bring drinking water.
  • This walk requires a moderate level of fitness.
  • There are no public toilets in Bold Park. Toilets are available at the nearby playground at the southern end of Perry Lakes Reserve.
  • All guided walks are free and bookings are not required for individuals.
  • Please contact the Friends of Bold Park Bushland if you have a group greater than five people who wish to attend.
