Inglewood Triangle¦Golly Walk
26 August, 10:00 am-12:00 pm
Meet at Entrance from Verge along Eighth Avenue at 10.00 am
Inglewood Triangle is a small 1.7 hectare ‘postage stamp’ of natural bushland, also known as Walter Hamer Eighth Reserve, bounded by Walter Road, Hamer Parade and Eighth Avenue in Inglewood. It is an A class reserve managed by the City of Stirling‘s Parks and Reserve Department with on-ground assistance by the Friends of Inglewood Triangle who will be our guides for the walk.
The Triangle is a near City example of a Banksia Woodland community and is situated on the Bassendean Sands landform. It provides a window into the past showing the natural bushland that once covered the area to the immediate north of Perth.
It may well be ‘postage stamp’ sized, but it is packed with bushland diversity – as such it is a special gem! To date, an impressive 89 native plants have been identified in the Triangle. Nats members say it is also a great place for fungi.
Fungi and slime moulds of Inglewood Triangle
The nine tree species present in the Triangle are common to the Perth region thus providing a wonderful outdoor classroom for students of all ages. Along with the Banksias there are Balgas (grass trees), orchids, an extensive ground cover of rushes and sedges, hosting reptiles and birds.
