Kalamunda National Park is 375 hectares of native bush and is well known for its diversity of native plants and birdlife. There are also plenty of native animals including kangaroos, bandicoots and echidnas. Plant species include jarrah, marri, wandoo and butter gum. The best time to visit the Park is August – November (late winter / Springtime) when the plants of the understorey flower profusely. Kalamunda National Park is home to some extremely rare plant species which exist nowhere else. Visitors can access the Kalamunda National Park at Spring, Fern or Schipp Roads, where they will find car park areas. From these points the walk trails through the park are accessible. The other access option is to enter through either Beelu National Park or Jorgensen Reserve. Beelu National Park is to the north, and is where walkers will find the northern entrance to the bridle track which crosses the park. Kalamunda National Park is also where the famous Bibbulmun Track starts (the Northern Terminus is located on the roundabout at the start of Mundaring Weir Road), and then winds 1,000 kilometres south to Albany. The Bibbulmun Track is rated as one of Australia’s best hiking trails. Piesse Brook flows through the park before joining the Helena River, making the park and important catchment area for both the Helena and the Swan River. Piesse Brook Walk Trail, also within Kalamunda National Park is a very picturesque and popular walk.
