About Warwick Bushland

Warwick Bushland is 60 hectares of original native vegetation in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia.

‚ÄčIt is jarrah-banksia woodland with scattered tall tuart trees and most of the bushland is still in very good condition. There are more than 200 species of wildflower, hundreds of larger fungi, at least 16 reptile and frog species and over 60 native bird species. Kangaroos are also occassionally seen.

Warwick Bushland comprises both the Warwick Conservation Reserve managed by the City of Joondalup and the Warwick Senior High School Bushland managed by the school.

Warwick Bushland is in the suburb of Warwick and occupies the far south-east corner of the City of Joondalup . It is bounded by Erindale, Beach, Warwick and Wanneroo Roads and is only 15 minutes from central Perth.

Warwick Conservation Reserve is protected by the state government's Bush Forever conservation plan as an important example of its type. This bushland was once widespread on the spearwood dunes of the Swan Coastal Plain upon which Perth is built.

Warwick Bushland is not only significant to the people of Perth, it is internationally significant as a conservation area in the unique landscape of south-west Western Australia. Southwest Australia is recognised as one of the 34 most remarkable places on Earth, a Biodiversity Hotspot. These Hotspots are the richest and most threatened reservoirs of life on Earth with numerous unique species and habitats.

Warwick Bushland is also registered as a Land for Wildlife site with the Department of Parks and Wildlife.
