The Jorgensen Park Walk Trail follows many of the old Kalamunda Golf Course fairways, most are very obvious although not your typical lush green views. The trail also incorporates some of the Bibbulmun Track along the northern edge of the park.

The land on which Jorgensen Park now sits, was pioneered in 1895 by Jacob & Annie Schmitt. In 1928 residents from the shire of Kalamunda formed a golf club and took out a loan of £25 each to purchase 67 acres of the Schmitt’s orchard and 60 acres of reserve bushland for the golf course.

The Kalamunda Golf Course was a popular challenging course that remained opened until 1972 when it was moved to Forrestfield. It is now used as public park and walk area. The park was named after Hedley Jorgensen, who was the son of one of the original buyers as well as maintaining the club president role for many years.

The walk is a 2.7km loop around the park, very easy walking and well signed with red triangles.  You can download a pdf map from the Kalamunda Shire website.

Start Point: The car park of the Kalamunda Learning Centre. at the end of Crescent Road, Kalamunda.

Trail Notes:
1. Leave the car park at Jorgensen Park. Go through the treated pine fence and walk in an easterly direction
on a well worn track down the middle of an old fairway.
2. Reach the end of the fairway; deviate right past a small clump of blackboys and continue on a marked
path. There are houses and a fence on the right.
3. At the corner of the fence veer left and continue down hill on the track.
4. A track runs off to the right, going steeply downhill. Eventually this track meets Schipp Road. Ignore this
track and turn left here and continue on the marked track.
5. Look for a wooden Bibbulmun Track sign at this point. Above it is a red walk trail sign. Turn right and walk
along a narrow track towards a look out over the Helena Valley.
6. A lookout point overlooking the Helena River Valley with glimpses down the valley to the coastal plain.
7. Walk to the left of a Kalamunda National Park sign. Leave the Bibbulmun Track which at this point
descends into the valley and continue on the walk track.
8. Continue across the end of the fairway coming in from the left. Go straight ahead and rejoin the Bibbulmun
track.
9. Turn right at a wooden post with a Bibbulmun track marker on it.
10. At the bottom of the hill cross the end of the fairway. There is a small water course here. Turn left.
11. Turn left off the Bibbulmun track and cross the small water
course. Walk up the fairway to your right and complete the
walk at the Kalamunda Learning Centre.


To help reduce the spread of Phytophthora Dieback at Jorgensen Park:
• Don’t spread soil or mud around bushland, in particular
during spring and autumn;
• Stick to tracks and paths;
• Observe signage in your local bushland reserve and
stay out of quarantined areas in bushland.

The bush is quite nice and the view on the other side of the hill looks right down the valley into Kalamunda National Park. There are lots of fire tracks and shared single tracks that walkers and mountain bikers use but there doesn't seem to be any overall map. Well worth a visit if you want an adventurous feel but don't want to bush-whack .

Great place to walk the dog. Enclosed park for young children and clean toilets. Suitable for a short walk. Mostly dogs off lead but owners tend to be very respectful and put the dog on the lead when walking past. Never had any issues walking our dog there. However; there is no real clear path so you tend to go over the same places a few times in the hopes of finding somewhere new. Some tracks lead to thick bush or properties.
