Summary

Eagle View Trail is short 300 metres one way steep trail ascends a ridge of rich Heathland with views across the Swan Coastal Plain and to neighbouring valleys. The resident mob of kangaroos is a highlight for the lucky visitor. Most of the trail consists of steps.

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. 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. There are four walk trails of varying degrees of difficulty, ranging from the Easy Walk Trail, which provides wheelchair access to the bushland, 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. 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.
