Blue Wren Ramble Trail is a 2.8km, grade 2 Return hike located in Ellis Brook Valley Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 0.75hrs to complete.

Summary

The Blue Wren Ramble is fairly easy 2.8 kilometre return walk that follows Ellis Brook. It passes through Wandoo Woodland, a prime nesting and feeding area for Birds. Dense thickets along the banks of the Brook provide a cool, shaded walk.

Ellis Brook Valley, located on Rushton Road in the suburb of Martin, Is recognised as the richest wildflower location in the Perth Metropolitan Area. It has over 500 species of wildflowers in a beautiful hidden valley only minutes from Gosnells Town Centre. The Ellis Brook Valley brochure provides more detail and mapping of the area. There are four walk trails of varying degrees of difficulty, ranging from the wheelchair accessible Easy Walk Trail, to the more difficult Sixty Foot Falls Circuit, which takes in sweeping views across Perth from the top of the waterfall. The Ellis Brook Valley Walk Trails brochure provides detailed mapping of the trails. Following the course of Ellis Brook, the Blue Wren Trail provides a mix of dense shrubbery and open Wandoo forest. On two occasions you cross Ellis Brook via bridge and the steep walls of the valley provide plenty of features to keep you interested. From the Car Park it is pretty much all uphill (63m vertical ascent) but is gradual enough that anyone should be able to tackle it. The end point for the trail is the Car Park at the end of Rushton Road that serves as the starting point for the Sixty Foot Falls Trail.  Ellis Brook Valley is a rich breeding site and home for many native and visiting Birds, including cockatoos, parrots, paRoadalotes, splendid and wedge-tailed eagles. It is also home to kangaroos, possums, bats and other native wildlife. Springtime, from mid-September to early November, is the best time to visit the Valley, with the wildlife and flowers at their peak. Composting toilets, barbecue facilites and parking are provided at the site. Please note that there is no water available in the Valley. Ellis Brook Reserve is just off Tonkin Hwy (use Gosnells Road East exit) and from Gosnells Road East just follow the signs to Rushton Road and the entry gates.
