Located on Rushton Road in the suburb of Martin, Ellis Brook Valley is recognised as the richest wildflower location in the Perth Metropolitan Area. Over 500 species of wildflowers can be found in this beautiful hidden valley only a few minutes drive from Gosnells town centre. 

The Valley is a rich breeding site and home for many native and visiting birds, including cockatoos, parrots, pardalotes, splendid fairy-wrens and wedge-tailed eagles. It is also home to kangaroos, possums, bats and other native wildlife.

Springtime, from mid-September to early November, is the best time to visit with the wildlife and wildflowers at their peak. 

The Easy Trail is one of several trails in the park. The Ellis Brook Valley Walk Trails brochure provides detailed mapping of the trails.

Composting toilets, barbecue facilites and parking are provided at the site. Please note that there is no water available in the Valley. Ellis Brook is just off Tonkin Hwy (use Gosnells Rd East exit) and from Gosnells Rd East just follow the signs to Rushton Rd and the entry gates.

The City of Gosnells manages the park in partnership with the Friends of Ellis Brook Valley (Inc), who have also assisted in the sensitive planning for the Valley's development as a nature-based tourism venue.

As advertised, a nice easy stroll. Lots of fantails, honeyeaters and blue wrens, with lots of flowers close to the path. Plenty of shade and benches for stopping along the way. Well-maintained.

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
