The Honeyeater Trail is a 7.7km loop bush trail covering the north western section of the park, accessed from either the Dryandra Drive carpark, just off Albany Highway, or the Admiral Road carpark, Admiral Road in Bedfordale. Each entrance has a trailhead located approximately 350 metres in from the carpark.

A watershed runs through the park from the north-west to the east, dividing the park into two water catchments. All the freshwater creeks are seasonal, generally flowing from May to November. The Cooliabberra Spring area, located along the western side of the Honeyeater Hike, has the highest conservation value of all the vegetation communities within the park. This area is heavily wooded with Wandoo and also affords glimpses out to the Swan Coastal Plain from a well placed seat along the trail.

The trail, walked in an anti-clockwise direction, passes through some areas of bush affected by Phytophthora Dieback and as such, numerous boot cleaning stations are provided along the trail to help prevent the spread of this disease. Please use these for cleaning boots and hiking poles to help keep the unaffected areas of the park safe.

With a history of timber and gravel extraction as well as firewood collection and honey production, Bungendore Park is now an area managed for conservation and passive recreation. Covering 498 hectares, Bungendore, which is part of the Wungong Regional Park, has had many long-term scientific surveys highlighting the great conservation value of the park.

Originally gazetted a timber reserve in 1897, Bungendore Park was repurposed as Parklands in 1908 and classified an 'A' Class reserve. 

Several books on the park are available to purchase from the Perth Hills Armadale Visitor Centre or brochures available from Bungendore Park Environmental Group at https://bungendorepark.com.au/
