Wandoo Heights¦GOLLY Walk

28 July, 10:00 am

Enter via gate on east side of Range Road, 140 m north of Loton Road. Drive to parking area on north side of house. Ideal opportunity to carpool.

Wandoo Heights Conservation Reserve in Millendon (13 kilometres from Midland) is a 22-hectare reserve located on the western face of the Darling Scarp. It is part of an original block of 4,000 hectares on the Upper Swan, granted in 1830 to George Fletcher Moore the Advocate General for the Swan Colony. Because of its general unsuitability for farming, Wandoo Heights was not cleared in the early days. Thus, much is still in its virgin state, as would have been observed by the early botanists in the 1820’s. It has eight different vegetation types ranging from heathland to Wandoo and Sheoak.
We will take a long walk before having an early lunch after which you will have the option of another short walk. Toilet is available. Kitchen is located on site, bring lunch, a thermos, and bring a chair. No booking required.
