Description

Ellis Brook Valley, located on Rushton Road in the suburb of Martin, is recognised as the richest wild flower location in the Perth Metropolitan Area. It has over 500 species of wild flowers in a beautiful hidden valley only minutes from Gosnells Town Centre and only a 35 minute drive from Perth. It is a rich breeding site and home for many native and visiting birds, including cockatoos, parrots, pardalotes, splendid fairy wrens and wedge-tailed eagles, just some of the over 116 species of birds at the site. It is also home to our furry residents including kangaroos, echidnas, possums, bats and other native wildlife. There are four walk trails of varying degrees of difficulty, ranging from the 'Easy Walk Trail', which provides wheel chair access to the bushland, to the more difficult 'Sixty Foot Falls Trail', which takes in sweeping views across Perth from the top of the waterfall and past the Old Barrington Quarry. Springtime, from mid-September to early November, is the best time to visit the Valley, with the wildlife and flowers at their peak and after good rainfall. A picnic area with gas barbecue facilities, picnic shelters, seating, tables and composting toilets are on site near the Honeyeater Hollow Picnic Area. Dogs on leash permitted. Rushton Road entry gates will be opened from 6:00am and closed at 7:00pm. Free Entry! No camping or overnight parking.

Only for the fittest. Track is very hard. If you take your dog at least clean up after it and take your dogs crap home with you not just dump it in bushes.

Went after a week or more of rain and waterfall not flowing. Quite a bit of graffiti on rocks.
