13090: Gooralong Brook restoration - Jarrahdale

    Gooralong Brook flows through the townsite of Jarrahdale in the hills to the south of Perth.

    The Brook was the centre of the town's timber industry from the late 1800s and is an important scenic and recreational area for residents and visitors. It is also provides habitat for many native plant and animal species.

    Non-indigenous trees and invasive weeds such as blackberry, bridal creeper, and watsonia are choking the Brook.

    This project aims to rehabilitate a 400 metre section of the Brook between Jarrahdale Road east to the Old Mill Manager's House.

    Activities include:

    • weed control along the Brook (1.2ha in total)
    • planting of 3000 native seedlings along the banks of the Brook
    • installation of a visitor track, boardwalk and interpretive signs.
    Investment: $ 15 000
    Delivery organisation: Jarrahdale Heritage Society
    Project duration: December 2013 - June 2015
    Location: Gooralong Brook, Jarrahdale Road in Jarrahdale
