BirdLife WA - Walk - Fred Jacoby Park/Portagabra Track

  • Date Sunday, 22 September 2024
  • Time 8:15 am
  • Locations Fred Jacoby Park/Portagabra Track, Mundaring


Half-day excursion (BirdLife WA Members only)

We step off at 8.15 am to walk around this park, which was gifted to the conservation estate by a local family, before walking the Portagabra Track (3.8 km) that starts and finishes at the park. There are some steep sections along the track plus a couple of creek crossings, which may still have water in them at this time of year.


Bring morning tea to have while the bird list is compiled.

For BLWA members and their guests only.

Leader: Peter Sandilands

Getting there

To get to Fred Jacoby Park, travel along the Great Eastern Highway until you reach Mundaring township. Turn right into Mundaring Weir Road at the only set of traffic lights in the town. Follow the road for approximately 6 km to Hampel Road just past Lavender Patch Chalets. Turn right into Hampel Road and follow it to the last carpark before the exit.
