KARLKURLA BUSHLAND PARK

The Karlkurla Bushland Park comprises of 200 hectares of natural regrowth bushland, along with over 2,000 trees and shrubs planted by community volunteers back in 2000. ‘Karlkurla’ (pronounced gull-gurl-la), is the local Aboriginal word for the Silky Pear, one of the many native bushes, trees and small plants that can now be enjoyed while strolling along the park’s 4km walking trail.

Karlkurla Bushland Park is also home to many animals. If you are very quiet or visit the Park in the early morning or evening, you may see a western grey kangaroo or two. There are also a number of reptiles found here with bobtails often sited in Spring as the weather starts to warm up. If you are lucky, you may see a dragon lizard or even a mulga snake! There are a variety of birds in the Park, magpies, willy wagtails, honeyeaters and miners are common.

Take time out from the hustle and bustle of life and witness some of the most amazing Goldfields sunsets from the top of the Katunga lookout, located about 1.5km from the Park’s entrance. Located at the end of Nankiville Road, in the suburb of Hannans, the park is open year round and is popular with bushwalkers and picnickers.

Join in the Parkrun each week. This free event, takes places every Saturday morning at 8:00am and offers the opportunity for all local community members, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together, irrespective of their ability, this event is truly open to all and best of all, it’s free.
