The Spinebill Stroll in Bungendore Park, a 3.5 km loop trail located high on the scarp just 3 km south east of Armadale, takes walkers through an area that is a popular nesting and congregational area of the Red-tailed Black Cockatoo. Also, keep an eye out for a family of Black-gloved wallabies and Western Spinebills along the trail. In Spring a range of orchids can also be seen along this trail.

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

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 by the Bungendore Park Environmental Group and the City of Armadale. 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.

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/
