Bush Reserves

We are compiling a list of all the Bush Reserves in the Roleystone Area. Some of these Reserves are managed by the Armadale City Council and some are managed by the Department of Conservation and Environment. Although not widely know, these Reserves are for the public. Roleybushcare will be adding to the information over time.

We hope to educate our community about the whereabouts of these beautiful bushland reserves. This will enable all of us to enjoy walking through these areas to observe our local wildflowers and wildlife. Many of the Reserves are maintained by resident volunteers in the area. They are also treated for Dieback and replanted by the Roleybushcare Group. Reserve burn-offs are carried out by the Roleystone Volunteer Fire Brigade. Roleybushcare is working with the Armadale City Council to place signage at the Reserves to help with identification. Due to annual budget restrictions, only a few signs can be installed each year.

The City of Armadale also have 'Reserve Custodians', who are people from the community who take on a neighbourhood watch role for the reserve. To become a Reserve Custodian you can contact the City on 9399 0111. Armadale City Council keeps the names of the Reserve Custodians anonymous so we don't know who they all are. However, if you have become a custodian and would like coordinate with Roleybushcare, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we can put you down as a contact.

Roleybushcare has a Reserve Historian who collects information such as dieback treatment, plant species and burn off dates on the reserve. If you have some information on a reserve, please mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
