Flora & Fauna
Welcome to Jarrahdale
One of Western Australia’s oldest settlements, Jarrahdale is set in the Darling Range and surrounded by Jarrah forest. The town is only an hour south of Perth and thirty minutes from Armadale or Rockingham.
Take a walk in the bush, have a picnic or just enjoy a coffee in the hills. Absorb the forest’s flora & fauna and allow your senses to come alive – see, hear and smell nature at its best. Spend time exploring our museum and taking in the town’s history. Buy maps of the many walk trails and join our guided bush walks.
Jarrahdale Heritage Society, based at the Old Post Office museum, is run by volunteers who are committed to preserving the area’s natural and man-made history.

We look forward to welcoming our visitors. If you have any research queries come and visit us or call our Curator.
We have finished our walks for 2023.
The Jarrahdale Heritage Society (JHS) is looking for a Guided Walks Coordinator for our 2024 Program. The Coordinator, with the help of a small group, is responsible for the preparation of a program, first aid training, website and booking system, publicity, preparing for each walk and reports.
Whilst our walks are particularly popular with those looking for something extra, perhaps an unexplored track and the historical stories we offer with it the number of participants has fallen away.
But with the help of a new and enthused team YOU may have what it takes to once again put our JHS Guided Walks back on track.

Our Walk Book “Jarrahdale Tracks & Trails” offers a choice of different walks in and around our town. The book may be purchased online HERE.
