Armadale Settlers Common in Bedfordale is a 383 hectare bushland reserve, of which approximately 287 hectares is vested in the City of Armadale for the purpose of 'parks and recreation'. The Common lies on the Darling Scarp and is within the wider Darling Range Regional Park. Access to The Common is available off both Carradine and Canns Road with plenty of parking. With access from Observation Circle and Canns Road for the Jeeriji, wheelchair and pram friendly trail.
The area is highly important for flora conservation, with a total of 318 plant species found in the Common, along with two 'Declared Rare and Priority Flora Species'. A diverse array of fauna and flora can be observed year-round.
Much of the bushland is in good condition and its network of walk trails invites recreational activities such as walking and hiking, orienteering, nature appreciation, picnicking, excercising and nature photography. The Common offers expansive views of the City, large areas of intact vegetation and public use facilities. The Common contributes significantly to the backdrop of the Armadale city centre and is part of the Heritage Country Tourist Drive.
Settlers Common East, the smaller of the two networks was designed to offer both gravel trails and paved paths for pram and wheelchair access. There are multiple opportunities along the trails to stop and rest, both in sheltered and unsheltered picnic areas and detailed historic information signs to find out more about this unique Common.
On the other side of Carradine Rd, lies the greater Settlers Common consisting of more bushwalking trails with stunning flora and views of the city. Please note that these trails are gravel only and longer than the Common on the east side.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.
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.
