The Bushland Nature Trail walk offers a unique encounter with Western Australia's famous wildflowers, trees and birdlife in their natural environment.

Bushland Nature Trail mia mia entryAn open mia mia structure marks the entry of the trail, with a mosaic depicting the Menzies Banksia, Banksia menziesii. The statement draws upon the key architectural elements of the temporary shelters built by Noongar people - Mia mia. Mia mias were traditionally made from grasstree spikes and branches that were shaped into a beehive form. They provided shelter for those travelling between hunting grounds.

The Bushland Nature Trail is an easy 25 minute loop walk. It is suitable for most groups including families and people with disabilities. Guided Walks are conducted regularly through the winter-spring period.

'A Pocket Guide to the Bushland Nature Trail' brochure offers a botanical guide to the bushland. It is available from the brochures section of this website and the Visitor Information Centre on Fraser Avenue.
