About Baldivis Children’s Forest Trail
As a public reserve, Baldivis Children's Forest is always open to pedestrian traffic. From the parking area on Mandurah Road, the walk trails begin at the entry gate.
Half way up the hill to the right there is the Nyungar Bush Tucker loop that provides an understanding of the way traditional owners lived. At the top of the hill to the left is a large undercover area, toilets, bbq and public art. From this point take the walk trail to the east which will lead you down past the amphitheatre.
Once you reach the bottom of the hill, cross over the gravel road and take the trail leading you through the outridge swamp area. This trail loops back to the gravel road, head south and join the previous trail to head back up the hill (Bird View), until you reach the Tuart Woodland trail, heading right (north) before you reach the amphitheatre. This walk trail will allow you to take in the tuart woodlands, connecting back to the outdoor facilities once again. There are various walk trails to discover in this reserve that is managed for the conservation of native plants and animals.
No dogs, pets or trail bikes are permitted in the reserve.
Local students have played a key role in establishing plants indigenous to the area, ensuring they remain healthy and provide a natural and safe habitat for a whole range of animal, reptile and bird species.
