In 1988, to celebrate Australia’s bicentennial anniversary of settlement, a 4.5km walk through the Armadale City centre was designed, along which 22 trees of significance which were specially marked.

The trees selected are either of historical importance, and therefore part of the City’s cultural heritage, botanically significant or being excellent examples of species found naturally in the district and hence part of natural heritage. All were considered deserving of preservation and protection as an essential component of Armadale’s botanic character and history.

In 2015, these trees were rediscovered, many with their bicentennial plaques intact. Of the 22, seven have been lost, but most are thriving, and remain part of Armadale’s green heritage. During the rediscovery project many other significant trees have been recognized as part of Armadale’s cultural or natural heritage, and as such, the number has now increased to 29.

Along the trail you can browse the shops of the Jull Street Mall, stop off for a coffee at one of the cosy cafes along the trail or find a quiet spot to sit under a shady tree. The trail also takes in the Pioneer Village, Minnawarra parkland and the Minnawarra Historic Precinct and is pram, wheelchair and dog friendly.

A booklet, with a map, explaining the history of each tree can be collected from the Perth Hills Armadale Visitor Centre or downloaded from their website https://www.perthhillsarmadale.com.au/downloads.
