The City of Gosnells Bridle Trail is a 5.3km long trail that stretches from Ellis Brook Valley (Martin) to Hardinge Park (Orange Grove). Located at the base of the Banyowla Regional Park, the trail passes through areas rich with ecological diversity, and is less than a 35 min drive from central Perth.

Honeyeater Hollow is the lower carpark and picnic area at Ellis Brook Valley. The surrounding bushland is recognised as the richest wildflower location in the Perth Metropolitan area. It has over 500 species of wildflowers which the City of Gosnells have revegetated many of the formally degraded areas. There are barbecues, picnic and toilet facilities available for use within the park.

As the trail leaves Ellis Brook Valley, it skirts the perimeter of Hillside Farm. The property is jointly managed by the City of Gosnells and the Department of Education to promote the principles of sustainable development.

North of Hillside Farm is a hard rock quarry, operated by Boral resources, who have kindly allowed access to their land for the trail from Grant Street to Hardinge Park. Stephen Street is the main access point for their trucks, so care must be taken when crossing the road here.

After leaving Stephen Street the trail passes up into the hills through more wandoo/jarrah/marri forest to Hardinge park where it terminates. The Bickley Brook Reservoir is adjacent to the park. 

Please keep in mind that the bridle trail travels through private land - keep to the trail and be aware of the directional trail markers.

Honeyeater Hollow (Ellis Brook Valley) and Hardinge Park both contain the follow facilities:

  • Toilets
  • Barbecues
  • Picnic tables
  • Shelter
  • Walk trails
  • Parking
