Easy track
Starting from the end of Groat Street, North Beach, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Star Swamp Bushland Reserve. This compact circuit lets you enjoy the flora and fauna of the reserve without spending much time. Make your way through grass trees, banksias and paperbarks as you keep an eye out for quendas, aka southern brown bandicoots and other wildlife. The name quenda comes from the Noongar word 'kwinda'. This area is also great for birdwatching, with 65+ bird species recorded till now. Interpretive signs along the track teach you about the cultural heritage and history of the area. Dogs are allowed on lead. If you're visiting in summer, protect yourself from the sun and maybe do the trip early as there isn't much shade. Watch out for snakes. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
