Formerly known as Mundaring National Park, Beelu National Park is situated to the west of Mundaring Weir Road in the Shires of Mundaring and Kalamunda. This beautiful 3000 hectare park includes the popular recreation sites of Fred Jacoby Park, South Ledge, North Ledge, Farrell Grove, The Dell, Gungin Gully, Pimelia Mycumbene and Grevillea Mycumbene. The Park was renamed in 2008 as an acknowledgement of the traditional owners of the area. The word Beelu is derived from the Noongar word for river or stream. The Beelu people were the original peoples of the area whose district was bounded by the Helena, Swan and Canning Rivers. Most of Beelu National Park is covered by jarrah and marri woodland interspersed with grasstrees. Wandoo can be seen in granite areas while blackbutt and flooded gums are found along the valley floors. Spring sees a spectacular display of a wide range of wildflowers. The most visible inhabitants are the birds including the threatened Carnaby’s cockatoos, Baudin’s cockatoos, western warblers, splendid fairy wrens and grey shrike thrushes. Quendas, western brush wallabies and western grey kangaroos also live in park. In terms of facilities, Beelu National Park has toilets, wood barbecues, picnic tables and a good selection of hiking and mountain bike trails. An information centre, the Perth Hills National Parks Centre (Allen Road, Mundaring – just off the Mundaring Weir Road) is located within the park and is open between 10.00am and 4.00pm to offer advice and refreshments to visitors. Two campsites are available to use within the park.
